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

hopscotch (9364) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2009
Bottle… Clear, very dark lager with ruby highlights and little to no head. The aroma puts forward chocolate, toasted cashews and a gentle dusting of espresso. Medium-bodied and creamy/silky with lively carbonation. Well-balanced chocolate and rye flavor. Finishes lightly bitter with rye dryness.

22oz bottle acquired in trade. Poured a dark and deep orange color (almost brown) with a large sized, 5 finger, off white head. Aromas of roast, chocolate, caramel, grains, and rye. Tastes of rye, lighter chocolate, toasty, caramel, and grainy. Some lacing left on the glass.

3fourths (8199) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2013 Draft. Deep brown, nearly black but there’s some tawny brown hues at the very bottom of the glass. Roast and heavy toasted black malt, burnt brown sugar, dry pipe tobacco and a light note of bourbon - honestly tastes much better than I expected. The nose is more of a simple toasted barley and straightforward rye, not as rich or complex as it is on the tongue, but overall it’s surprisingly good, could fool me into thinking it’s a foreign stout

Skinnyviking (7177) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2008
Draught. Low and quickly disappearing brown heade. Clear dark brown body. Weak and sweet coffee aroma. Flaovr quite hoppy coffee. High carbonation and a long bitter aftertaste.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 27, 2008
Bottle thanks to TheBeerSommelier: Pours a barely transparent dark mahogany black with a spotty-lacing froth of beige head. Aroma of dry roasty dark malts and some grapefruity hops. Starts fairly full and sweet with nice rye flavor and very roasty bitter malty balance with a touch of citrusy hops. Finishes drier and bittersweet with some lingering dark chocolate and coffee flavors. An interesting and well-made brew.

Ibrew2or3 (7043) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 26, 2008
Pours brown with modest tan head. The aroma is light pulling up notes of roastiness, faint burnt malts, a bit of tobacco and earthiness too. The taste is interesting. It starts both moderately thin yet creamy smooth bringing a quick pulse of sweet malts and brief lactose dryness. Then varied highly roasted malts going right up to burnt malts take over and dominate to the finish with a full rye twang spiciness tagging along. Wow, plenty of rye going on here. YUM.

sebletitje (6849) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 12, 2008
Courtesy of Tony @ OTH. Pours black. I have been looking forward to trying this one. It proved to be a very nice and original brew. Aroma is roasted, mocha, coffee and definite rye presence. Taste, beer is thick, with rye aftertaste. Malty and a nice light bitter hoppy finish with good presence of rye. There is nothing bad to say about this beer. Taste is very unique, the mix of dark roastiness and grilled coupled with rye and hops make this beer one unique and enjoyable brew.

j12601 (6703) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 22, 2009
Bottle at Paul’s tasting. Pours a clear cola brown with a thin white head. Light smoke, spicy rye, little bit of roast, a bit of grain. Smooth, with a bit of roast malt, a touch of rye. Finishes with a long slow bitterness and a bit more of that grain and rye flavor.
