Sounds, well, interesting.
Sure post the recipe for further scrutinization.
Where are you located.... may be easier to find a homebrew club with some BJCP judges vs shipping beers all around the place.

Sounds like this one is in the fermenter already.  I think it's great that you're just brewing something different that you think sounds good.  I'd say it's ready when the fermentation is done and it tastes good to you.

Yeah post the details.  Only taste will tell at this point since you already went for it but we can advise you as you nurture it along its way.   ;)

I just brewed up a couple of Belgian dark strongs.  One had tangerine zest and cocoa.  I will be infusing it with cacao nibs as it ages.  Orange and coffee sounds like it could be a pleasant combo as well.

One of the best beers I have ever had was extract. Wonderful beer can be made that way! I can't wait for the recipe.
