Starbucks experimenting with new latte that tastes just like Guinness
Published 21/09/2014 | 14:52
The multinational company is testing consumer reaction to its formula: a creamy latte inspired by Irish stout.
Starbucks is known for its flavoursome creations, from Salted Caramel Mochas to Cookie and Cream Frappucinos.
Now, caffeine addicts can try the latest offering: the Dark Barrel Latte.
The Dark Barrel Latte is topped with cream and incorporates dark caramel sauce and a flavoured syrup that mirrors the taste of dark beers.
The drink is currently available in some locations across the US, as Starbucks tests its popularity.
Judging by social media, this could be the coffee-equivalent of Marmite.
