Hello,
As such black colored vomit means gastrointestinal bleeding.
Black vomit can be a vomit which is dark and consists of digested blood along with gastric contents.
It can be caused due to NSAIDS(Ibuprofen ) / peptic ulcer .
You need to be seen by a doctor or visit ER ASAP.
As you will need to be assessed with ENDOSCOPY and may need blood transfusion and treatment with proton pump inhibitors.

It is an emergency condition.
I hope this helps.
