ARE YOU SITTING comfortably? Big news.

Starbucks are trying out a new latte that’s supposed to taste exactly like a lovely, creamy Guinness.

Inspired by ‘the rise of craft beers’ the coffee chain have dreamed up the new Dark Barrel latte, which blends caramel, chocolate and espresso to create a stout-flavoured coffee.

According to information from a barista on the Starbucks sub-Reddit, the new latte contains a ‘chocolatey, stout-flavoured sauce’ that gives a normal coffee that smack of Guinness we all desire.

It does not (unfortunately? fortunately?) contain any beer, but a Buzzfeed writer that tried it out did think it tasted “remarkably” like stout.

The product is currently being tested in stores across the US, so there’s no word yet on whether we’ll be seeing it over here.

Heads up, though, Starbucks – WE have the final say on what tastes like Guinness or not. Just letting you know.
