Starbucks is Testing a Guinness-Like Creamy Dark Coffee

By Gary Cutlack on at

Visitors to some Starbucks human fuelling stations in the US are seeing a new form of coffee being tested, with the company's Dark Barrel Latte apparently offering a taste similar to that found in the stouter types of beer.

The drink arrives topped with cream to give it the appearance of a pint of Guinness, with flavour added by a dark caramel sauce and beer-like syrup. Sounds like an ideal way of getting an extra few hundred calories of sugar into yourself each day. [Independent]
