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-ryeízd 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 neighborsí children for another bottle. The spice derived from the judicious amount of rye malt will bombard your pallet

Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, toasted nuts/bread, cocoa), lightly to moderately hoppy (grapefruit, resin), lightly yeasty (dough), with a note of berries. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. One of the most awkward bottle descriptions Iíve seen in a while, but the beer isnít so bad. Sure, itís overly bitter, lacks richness, and itís a bit too hop accented in the nose for my tastes (was hoping this would be more about the malt), but overall itís drinkable.

douglas88 (6323) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 4, 2008
Bomber shared by Eric. Pours out a very dark brown color with a bubbly light brown head. The aroma is very light, some roasted malts, and some sweet notes, perhaps maple syrup. The taste was also smooth and light, sweet hops, citrus like hop flavors, chocolates, and a grainy earthy malt. Pretty nice, but nothing really stood out. Not terrorizing, but nice.

22 oz. bottle. Pours a dark brown color with reddish highlights and a medium frothy beige head. The aroma is roasted malts with a hefty dose of chocolate. Additional hints of light fruitiness, caramel, spices,and grainy bread. The flavor has more roasted malts, smooth chocolate, rye is noticeable, nutty, and lightly fruity. The alcohol does come out as it warms as does some black coffee bitterness. Medium to full bodied, smooth.

PorterPounder (5704) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2008
Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 22 oz bomber. Pours a very dark ruby red leading to black with a nice silky mocha colored head. Aroma is rather strange with some toe jam accents and baking bread. Flavor is an improvement on the aroma with some strong citrus notes, hints of licorice, some Christmas spices and a touch of mint. Nice thick mouthfeel. Good collaboration.

riversideAK (5626) - 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.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - NOV 24, 2009
Bottle Shared at Ryan & Maxís Tasting @ Pauls. Pours a brune body with a tan head. Malty body with hints of caramel chocolate and a spicy rye accent still coming across as a bit light and grainy however. Some light smoke notes and roasted malt. Decent enough.

Suttree (5260) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 29, 2008
Dark brown, thick beige head. Aroma is rye, of course, but also an odd white wine or saison aroma. flavor is more rye, then an unexpected but pleasent chocolate note and also some coffee. Really tasty stuff.

decaturstevo (5213) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JAN 27, 2009
Dark hard aroma of roasted malt and almost coffee. Deep brown pour with hints of red. Burnt malt flavor and a semi sweet to a hard bitter finish. Full bodied smooth carbonation. A solid beer.

notalush (4994) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 8, 2009
Dark brown pour, thick, off-white head - aroma of chocolate and black malts, with a strong, spicy rye presence - the flavor is quite bitter, with a considerable roasty character that compliments it quite well - the rye comes on strong through the middle, but then chocolate and vanilla bean sweetness pop up momentarily, only for the spicy rye to come back in the finish - I sure do like rye, though, so thatís not a problem for me.
