Starbucks Testing Beer-Flavored Coffee?

If you like coffee and beer, maybe this new Starbucks drink is worth a shot! Starbucks is testing what they've named the Dark Barrel Latte, a drink made with espresso and a chocolaty stout flavor and topped with whipped cream and a dark caramel drizzle. While there's no alcohol actually in the drink, many are insisting that it tastes a lot like beer.

Starbucks already sells beer and wine at some of their stores in the evening, and this fun new blend might be a good way to bridge the gap between the coffee lovers and the beer & wine enthusiasts. Many of the company's customers love trying new things and unique flavor pairings, so for now they're testing this drink to see if it has the potential to become more widely available.

Currently, the drink is only being tested at a handful of stores in Ohio and Florida. The "stout flavor" is in reality a "roasted malt flavor", which gives it that beer-like taste. The Dark Barrel Latte can also be ordered as a blended Frappuccino.
