Yes, it is possible to have black colored eyes.

See the following website:

Admin note:
Eye color is caused by the amount of the pigment melanin in the iris. Lots of 
melanin will produce brown eyes. Even more melanin will cause the eye to appear 
effectively black. Try searching our archives for more information on melanin 
and eye color.
