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

jercraigs (7348) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 21, 2012
2012-01-06. Very dark brown-black body, nice foamy tan head. 4+ Interesting aroma, alcohol, weird fruit character, sort of chocolate touches. Flavour is similar with odd fruit meets cocoa and light roast. 6+ Average plus bodied palate. Okay, the flavour combinations do not always work well together for my tastes.
