Starbucks, which has seen its Pumpkin Spice Latte become a seasonal phenomenon, has begun testing a latte that tastes like beer.
It's called Dark Barrel Latte, but it doesn't have any alcohol. Instead, the drink contains a chocolate stout-flavored sauce that might remind drinkers of a dark beer such as a Guinness. It also has whipped cream and a dark caramel drizzle.
Note, the "might remind" disclaimer. There's another glaring flaw I see with this concoction — Coffee Stout is actually made with coffee. Beer-flavored coffee is not made with any beer.
