Starbucks this week confirmed the launch in Ohio and Florida of the craft beer-inspired Dark Barrel Latte, a coffee that reportedly has “toasty stout flavours". Apparently, it tastes a little bit like Guinness, which makes for an interesting twist on Irish coffee. 

Unlike its grown-up cousin, however, this Irish is alcohol-free, so can be safely included on the morning coffee run.
