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

Bomber from the Tampa Tasting Group. Pours dark brown and red with a white head. Nose is some rye, some pepper, and some noticeable darkish fruit and spice. Flavor is much the same but very easy-drinking and enjoyable; barely any lager characteristics noticeable. I like how easy this beer is to drink.

22 ounce bottle pours a coca-cola brown color, aromas of chocolate, roast, malt, and some rye. Flavors follow suit, nice light rye spiciness overall.

Terrapin is staying relatively busy these days. Oak-aging just about their entire lineup, there’s always the Side Project series, and now they’ve started up the Midnight Project Series, a collaboration effort with Colorado brewery, Left Hand. Appearance: Pours a very dark brown body with a full, frothy, beige-colored head. Fine layering of lacing on the way down. Smell: Roasty, nutty, chocolaty nose predominately with large background notes of spiced, bread chock full of grain. Lesser hint of dried fruit. Taste: Roasty malts with flavors of burnt caramel, baker’s chocolate, roasted nuts, and licorice witness transient hints of malt sweetness before the thriving rye spiciness and resinous hop kick. Slight touch of dried fruits. Bitterness goes round and round with the roasty, increasingly coffee-ish malts and overall ample taste of grainy, fresh-baked bread. Finishes dry with a roasty bitterness. Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Medium carbonation. Quite the chewy, velvety body! Drinkability: I would generally recommend this, sure. I’m typically more of a maltmouth instead of a hophead, but I didn’t find this unacceptably or objectionably bitter as some seem to have. Lookin’ forward to the next Midnight Series release, which seems to be in a year, so please blast me out a polite reminder e-mail sometime beforehand.

Pours brown and sits dark brown with a one finger fizzy tan head. The aroma is earthy, malty, spicy, mild roasty character. The flavor is spicy, metallic, bitter, earthy, waxy, mild roastyness. The palate is waxy and bitter and finishes astringent.

Brew one, Vintage 2008.
22oz bottle. Very dark, dark brown color. Light tan head. Spicy, peppery aroma of the rye. Loads of roast. Burnt grain scent. A good bit of chocolate malts as well. Very thick body, like a heavy viscous motor oil. Nice flavor, lots of char, a bit of spice. Finishes with a nice earthy hop. Citrus with dark chocolate is a great touch of flavor to leave behind. Has aged beautifully.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - JUL 24, 2009
Poured an almost cleer deep brown color with a medium sized beige head. Chocolate notes with some ash and light hops in the aroma. Mild roasty malt flavor. Fairly spicy, rye, with some ash. Dry and clean bitter finish. Light to medium bodied.

The aroma is good with toasted malt, chocolate, hops, and rye. The appearance is red-brown with a nice head. The flavor is astringent and somewhat like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall it’s a little disappointing when it comes to flavor.

nearbeer (4121) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 19, 2008
650 ml. Translucent deep chestnut with a half-inch head that lasts and leaves Swiss cheese lacing behind. Aroma of peppery rye bread, molasses and light licorice. Flavor is similar with some fresh herb-hops peeking through as well. Nice bittersweet charry finish. Heavy body is smooth, peppery-tingly and roasty dry. Damn fine lager.
