Color is jet black and opaque, with a thin tan head that fades quickly but leaves a fair amount of lacing behind. Aromas are first all about the coffee, and then lend themselves to notes of vanilla, bittersweet chocolate and spiced pipe tobacco.

The taste is dominated by dark roasted grains, as in coffee, but is kept in check by enough malt sweetness to not be too bitter. There is also some earthy hop presence, but this doesn't add much bitterness. The oatmeal addition gives the mouthfeel a creamy texture. Carbonation is low. The finish has a moderate bitterness and flavor of coffee grains, plus a hint of chocolate.

Overall a delightful beer, my first from Avondale BC.

Enjoyed on tap at Hop City, Birmingham, while beer shopping. Now that's how you do it.

A: Black with hints of chocolate brown. A pretty mocha head that stays for at least an aisle of beer. Thick lacing.

S: Mmmm. Smell that chocolate and coffee. The perfect wake up drink.

T: Oh, yeah. Smooth, rich, chocolate-y. I could munch down a chocolate chip cookie with this one. Robust and stout. Coffee slips in, but the mocha dominates. Very nice.

M: Medium with thick and chewy carbonation.

O: Well, after that pour from the growler bar, I had to buy a bomber of No Joka Mocha to take home. Terrific stout from my neighbor to the east. Well done, Avondale.
