Pumpkin spice and salted caramel-flavored coffee sure says fall to many people – but what about a coffee that tastes like cold weather's favorite beer? I'm sure there are a lot of people out there who could definitely get into that – provided it's not gross or anything. There's plenty of coffee-flavored beer, so why not turn the tables?

The world's most popular coffee brand is currently testing a new cup of coffee called the "dark barrel latte". According to a report from Reuters, the drink will include "a chocolaty stout flavored sauce, whipped cream and dark caramel drizzle." Yes, it supposedly tastes like a stout beer.

The stout-flavored latte is only being tested in a few stores in Ohio and Florida, so don't grab your keys and head out the door yet. Like any company, Starbucks routinely runs tests – so the survival of the beer-coffee likely depends on the response it receives in those select markets.

Nutritional info has yet to be revealed, but things like "chocolaty sauce", "whipped cream", and "dark caramel drizzle" suggest that it'll fall somewhere between a couple hundred and a few gajillion calories. Unfortunately, the Dark Barrel Latte in completely alcohol-free.
