Starbucks Tests Beer-Flavored Latte in Select Ohio Locations

Coffee mogul Starbucks is testing out a new type of latte in some Ohio and Florida markets that supposedly tastes exactly like a Guinness.

Though it doesn't contain alcohol, the Dark Barrel Latte combines a chocolaty stout -flavored sauce, whipped cream, and a dark caramel drizzle to make a coffee beverage that apparently tastes like a beer. 

We've gotten word that some of these concoctions have cropped up for testing in the Columbus area (one C-bus-based barista posted a Dark Barrel Latte test training guide to reddit).

Has anyone reading tried one of these bad boys yet? 

If not, does it sound like something you'd pick up on a morning/afternoon coffee run?
