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

Hank1980 (966) - Athens, Georgia, USA - FEB 27, 2009
Tasted on tap and in bottle. Pours dark, with some red notes, decent tan head, nice lace. Aroma of caramel, nuts, malt. Taste is similar with some nice hop notes contained within. Finish is smooth and nicely bitter. Body is medium with good amount of carbonation. Overall, an interesting brew that doesn’t fit into the typical mold.

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?

mreusch (851) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - JUN 24, 2009
22oz. bottle, with thanks to dchmela for the nice bonus! Pours a darker cola brown with a large tan head. Aroma is also a bit cola like, with light general spice, toasted rye, bread and some minimal dried dark fruit. Flavor has a little more going on, with more light spice, roasted rye, bread and a little chocolate, but started to wear on me after a while. Not bad, and an interesting collaboration, thanks again Dave!

mcbackus (758) - Merritt Island, Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2009
Bottle. Pours a dark chocolate brown with a small tan head that lingers. Aroma is very roasty some chocolate and very little to no rye. Some decent toffee like sweetness also no hops. Flavor is very smooth with a silky chocolate and a good roast chatacter that plays well with the drying rye. Overall a very drinkable beer

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.

puggy211 (712) - cordova, Tennessee, USA - JAN 15, 2009
This poured a dark brown color with a beige head. The aroma contains some rye along with some chocolate and marshmellows. The flavor contains rye, chocolate, caramel, and oddly more marshmellows. The finish is a mixture of sourness but more sweet than anything. Overall an different and pretty good beer.

scoth (667) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 6, 2008
Bottle. Pours clear dark brown, almost black with a medium tan head. Strong coffee malt smell. Crisp, just a tiny bit thicker than a typical lager. Tastes of coffee, sweet, light caramel malts, and rye. The pine hoppy, bitter taste picks up at the end, and complements the rye.

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - JAN 4, 2009
Attractive mahogany body is clear when held to light. Aroma of toasted rye bread, faint chocolate and spicy hops. Creamy body with a rye bite. A hint of red apple skin and pepper in the taste add to the spicy hop, rye, and choclate notes. I’m a sucker for these well done rye beers.
