Starbucks Is Testing A New Latte That Tastes Exactly Like Guinness

The best part of waking up is the taste of Guinness in your cup.

Attention all coffee lovers: Starbucks is testing a new drink that they say tastes like stout beer.


The Dark Barrel Latte is made with a flavored syrup that mirrors the taste of dark beers like Guinness. It's topped with whipped cream and a dark caramel sauce.

It's available now in select test markets, but no word on when the drink will be available nationwide. When I was in Columbus, OH a few weeks ago, I tried the Dark Barrel Latte, and it does taste remarkably like stout.

Are you ready to have Guinness for breakfast?*

*There isn't actually any beer in the drink.
