Dark Barrel Latte

Starbucks is well known for its inventive drinks, very gimmicky sometimes.

This time they are testing a lattes that taste like beer, called Dark Barrel Latte.

The company reports that it is inspired by the rise of the craft beers and will test the new beverage in two states: Ohio and Florida.

The drink’s toast malt character is meant to be reminiscent of a stout. But instead of the thick cream top that you get on a regular stout, the Starbucks version comes with caramel and whipped cream on top. It has also a chocolately stout flavored sauce.

You don’t need to be over 21 because the drink has no alcohol.

It has a roasted malt taste and comes hot, iced or as a Frappucino.

According to some websites, the drink is receiving mixed reviews. Some confirm that the beverage tastes like stout, some consider it a warm Guinness.

For the moment, the company informs that Ohio and Florida residents will be the exclusive testers until further notice.

Only the future will tell if this beverage will be available worldwide and will be in a Starbucks coffee shop near you!
