COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Black Moon is a limited-batch beer collaboratively crafted by Rock Art Brewery and Hunger Mountain Coop. Inspired by the private, intimate and richly renewing time when the moon is dark in the sky. Black Moon processes an alluring darkness brimming with possibility. Black Moon is a deep, dark, highly hopped offering whose roasted malts subtly eclipse its bright hop notes, creating a unique full-flavored beer that can be enjoyed throughout the year, savored in moments of solitude or among close friends

22 oz bottle purchased at the Rock Art Brewery. Pours black with a thick creamy mocha colored head. Pine aroma with roasted malt in the background. Flavor starts out with a strong punch of hops then levels out a bit with some bitter bakers chocolate and some char. Heavy in the mouth lightened with active carbonation. Very good.

Bottle courtesy of imagineiii. Served in a Bruery tulip. Pours near black with an off-white head and some spotty lacing as it goes down. The nose is a bit plain with some woody characteristics and a bit of dryness. There is a bit of a perfume-like character there as well, perhaps from some floral-forward hops. The flavor has a lot of roast plus some pine and more of the perfume notes. Feel is brought down by this, as it almost seems like someone sprayed perfume way too close to my face right before I inhaled. Overall, this was pretty good, though nothing out of the ordinary.

A 10% Black IPA? Time for BA to create the "Imperial Cascadian Black Ale" catagory. Aroma is a subtle hoppiness, very strong, very bitter, very booty. Ahh... pass.

Pours as black as a stout, with an off-white head. Tastes quite bitter on the finish, but the initial taste is malty and sweet. Bitterness fades in the aftertaste and leaves the sweetness behind. My recommendation for this beer is to let it warm up. This is my fifth time drinking it and you’ll want it out of the fridge for about an hour to fully release the flavors. Great beer from Rock Art.
