UPDATED: MAR 28, 2003 Sampled at Honolulu location. Dark brown colour with tan head. Roasty coffee aroma with a slight vegetal edge. Strong coffee/mocha flavour. If I didn't know better, I'd think it was a very good porter or dry stout. swanmann (773) - Nompton, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 18, 2007
Taster had a very chocolatey aroma, even from the sample glass, roasty. Nice black apearance w/ hazlenut highlights and a creamy off-white head. Mild chocolatey bitterness with slight acidic astringency and a quick finish. Very good BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JAN 21, 2008

Aroma – Great use of dark malts and a great amount of hops.
Appearance – Brown in color with a clear view and a nice light head.
Flavor – Deep flavor from the malts the hops added a great flavor. I got molasses and chocolates flavors also.
Palate – Nice Mouthfeel with a good dry finish.
Overall – This was the best beer for this place. Had flavor, finish and overall just hit the spot and had a lot of great care to brew this beer.
It has the benefit of being very fresh due to the brewery/restaurant setup that Brew Moon has. Sweet in comparison to Guinness. fordest (2470) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - MAY 29, 2007
Draft at brewpub. Very dark pour with a decent head. Roasty aromas with a decent flavor that really profiled the Black Patent malts. Not Bad

Sampler, pours Dark Black with a thin brownish color head. Creamy full body with a milk chocolate texture that has a hoppy bitterness to it. Ending with a light wood taste. I enjoy this more than the rest in the sampler. elihapa (1553) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - AUG 23, 2008
Brew Moon Black Hole Lager 8/20/08 (on tap, Brewpub. Pours black with tan head. Dark chocolate, hops, black coffee, and roasts in the nose. Flavor is similar to some lighter stouts I’ve had, but evident lager-qualities help avoid style confusion. Maybe my mind is playing tricks on me in hindsight, but I do remember that this beer never got truly bitter, so I’ll say that the mid-palate features some sweetening malt, almost a licorice flavor. Overall, this is a solid, flavorful brew, probably tops from this brewpub. nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 1, 2009
