I tried this beer at the brewery. It poured an opaque black with tan head that did not leave any lace. The scent is coffee. The taste is coffee. The Mouthfeel is lighter in body with subtle carbonation. Overall it's ok.

Served in a pint glass at the brewpub. From notes. Reviewed 23 November 2014.

Black. Impenetrable. Mocha-colored head.
Immense coffee in the nose. Intense, super-dry, and rich. Dark chocolate. This is great!
Mmm, tasty but not immensely so. Lamentably thin, with a cold coffee neutral finish. Still worthwhile, especially for coffee lovers. Some lightly sweet malt.
Drinkable (more so than many coffee beers) and tentatively recommended.

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.

Appearance - The beer was brownish black with a mocha color head.

Smell - The nose brings to mind a freshly opened can of coffee grounds.

Taste - The beer is highlighted by notes of coffee grounds and baker's chocolate. The sense of this beer is very dry. The finish leans far more bitter than sweet.

Mouthfeel -The feel is almost too smooth for an oatmeal stout. It seems more like a milk stout.

Overall - I would have like more sweetnees in this one.

Packaging: 22 oz. brown bottle, pry-cap
Glassware: Tulip
Purchased: Single from Wish You Were Beer, Huntsville AL

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.
