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

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 youíll want it out of the fridge for about an hour to fully release the flavors. Great beer from Rock Art.

malrubius (1961) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JAN 21, 2015
Bottle from Woodstock Hops and Barley. Black with tan head and lace. Spicy hop aroma with hints of fruity hops and chocolate chip cookies. Roasted dark chocolate covered coffee beans nuts and lots of tangy fruitiness sweetness. Medium complex spicy cinnamon and fruity hops. Fairly dry with some lingering woody spicy bitterness. Fairly complex. Very good, maybe excellent. Iíll decide when it warms up a bit. Great palate for abv well hidden alcohol. I guess Iíll go with excellent.

Very good black IPA, alcohol content is 10%, but a well balance beer, so you wonít notice it. In all, I did enjoy this brew
