(Newser) – Like to start your morning with the taste of Guinness? You're in luck: Starbucks is testing a new latte flavor called Dark Barrel, which contains a syrup reminiscent of a dark beer, the Independent in Ireland reports. It's also got whipped cream and dark caramel sauce. And don't fear a hangover: There's no actual beer in the drink, which is only available in select areas at the moment, BuzzFeed notes. How is it? Twitter is divided: "The dark barrel latte from Starbucks tastes just like beer & I might be in love," notes one user, while another says it "tastes like fruit flavored coffee." If you live in Columbus, Ohio, or some areas of Florida, you can try it yourself, Music Times reports. (Read more Starbucks stories.)
