COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Midnight Project One - Sometime at midnight in a city nobody can agree on, the idea for Left hand and Terrapin to brew a collaboration beer together was born. Terra-rye’zd is the first of a series of one-time releases between the two breweries. It is a beguiling black rye lager that will hold you hostage with its complex flavor, and make you want to ransom off your neighbors’ children for another bottle. The spice derived from the judicious amount of rye malt will bombard your pallet

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 6, 2010
Pours black with hints of red around the edges topped by a creamy head the color of dirty sand. Lots of rye in the nose, sweet with just a touch of herbal hops evident. Malty schwarzbier character intertwined with a persistent rye graininess. Underlying citrusy hop profile keeps the beer malty but not overly sweet. Roasty, milk chocolate, bready, grainy spicy rye and big citrusy/floral hops. An odd combination of flavors. The rye is so pronounced, I would avoid this beer if you don’t care for rye beers. As it is, it’s a malty, velvet smooth and perilously drinkable.

riversideAK (5595) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUN 3, 2010
Rye spice, chocolate, sweeter notes as well. Pours darker brown, no head or lace. Rye, light chocolate, earth, light bitterness, caramel. Light spice, soft carbonation, lingering rye notes. Almost mentholly in a sense.

Bomber shared by chswimmer on BA. Thanks, Craig. Pours a clear dark brown color with a light tan head that has decent retention. Aroma is fairly simple. Roasty with rye notes, maybe some coffee. Didn’t really pick up too much else going on. Nice though. Flavor has a little more going on. Once again, rye and roast are dominant. Some bitter coffee, and an earthy and resinous hop character. Good stuff. Medium body and average carbonation level. A pretty good beer overall. Fairly drinkable.

Bottle, 22oz, courtesy of fonefan. A clear, dark amber beer with a finger-thick pillow of dense, beige head. Some alcohol on the nose, but mostly roasted malts and dried fruits. Nice hops. Roasted flavor with nice citrusy, resiny hops, caramel and a little warmth from the alcohol. Full-bodied and pleasantly carbonated. Resiny bitter finish. Sure, it’s a nice beer, but it feels a bit one dimensional even though there’s several different flavors easily detected. Wouldn’t shy away from more of this. 091024

Explodes into the glass with a dark chocolate pour and a thick pillowy tan head that lingers thru much of the drink and leaves excellent lacing. Aroma is a pleasant malty chocolate backed up by a hint of caramel. Unfortunately, the joy ends there. The mouthfeel was thin, watery and very metallic, completely dominating any flavors I had hoped to gleen fromt he taste, and carrying all the way thru the finish. I was left with a finish of all metal and not watning more. How could something that started so well end so poorly?

DeadGirl (478) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 26, 2010
Pours dark, reddish brown from the 22oz. bottle, with a lasting, frothy off-white head: Nose of nuts and hard roasted malt. Fairly hoppy bite. Ash-y. Medium bodied, nicely carbonated. Lasting duration, oily textured. Alcohol is fairly noticable. Drinkability: Pretty solid. Rebuy: Not my personally favorite style, so I might pass on a second helping. #257 on 26012010, DG.
