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

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Bomber picked up in a trade. Poured amber in color with a small tan head. Aroma of rye bread, lightly sweet malt, and toffee. Tastes of rye, toffee, light chocolate, spices, with some mild hops in the finish. Overall pretty dry but with a nice body. Pretty nice.

scoth (479) - 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.

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.

KieferUGA (461) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 31, 2008
22 oz. bottle. Pours a ruddy, dark brown. Medium sized, light brown head. Aroma of nuts, chocolate, smoked malts. Nice lacing present. Smooth mouthfeel. Nice malt flavor with hints of roasted nuts, spicy rye. Flavor is smoked and spicy. Nice first entry of the Midnight Series. KUTGW.

timsilvia32 (449) - from Michigan now in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - FEB 18, 2009
22 oz. bottle. Somewhat transparent black pour. Frothy white head. Burnt malt, light chocolate and some piney hop aroma. Surprisingly creamy mouthfeel, rather pleasant medium body. Grainy, smokey roast malt flavors. Just slight lingering bitter at the finish. The frothyness is almost too much. Otherwise, this is a real nice brew and quite drinkable. If all dark rye beers are like this, I will seek them out.

ScottyP (425) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - SEP 7, 2009
Pours a clear brown with beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, bread, spice, rye, touch of hops. Similar taste, grainy. Dry finish. Medium carbonation.

aplusbreaks (330) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 16, 2008
Pours a deep mahogany with a nice khaki head. Aromas of some roasty toasty malts. coffee, and a bit of chocolate. Flavors are very much the same with the addition of rye and a supple amount of hops. Plate is pretty thin and could definitely take this brew to the next level.

8 oat 08: on tap at the brewery
Sweet, carmelly, molasses aromas reminiscent of rye bread. little/no hop aroma
Dark brown with ruby hints, clear, tan head with good retention
Sweet, malty start with a good bitter bite and tangy/spicy rye notes throughout.
Heavy body, velvety, chewy, mouth coating. Medium carbonation
Big malty and a good bitter punch (but balanced more toward the malt).

hbchrist (64) - North Carolina, USA - MAR 2, 2009
Pours dark, dark ruby, nearly opaque. The smell is hard to describe, but it is *appealing*. The taste hit me the wrong way. The first taste reminds me of a strong, slight yeasty IPA, but it quickly dissolves into a traditional tasting (to me) stout. As it fades, it left a sour flavor that reminded me of vomit. I will try another bottle just to be sure, and if the next round is better, I will edit my review.
