Line two greased 9 inch baking pans with waxed paper and grease the paper; set aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and brown sugar until crumbly. Beat in egg yolks and vanilla. Stir in chocolate and coffee. Combine flour, salt and baking soda; add to chocolate mixture alternately with buttermilk (batter will be thick). Pour into prepared pans.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, bring sugar, milk and butter to a gently boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat; stir in extract.
Invert cakes onto wire racks; drizzle with glaze. Cool completely. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips with milk; stir until smooth.
Refrigerate until spreadable, stirring occasionally. Place one cake on a serving plate; spread with filling. Top with remaining cake. Spread whipped topping over top and sides of cake. Store in the refrigerator. Garnish with chocolate curls, if desired.
