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

Bottle shared at Maltzilla’s All American Weekend. Pours dark brown/black color with brownish head. Aromas of roasted malts, rye, chocolate. Burnt malt flavor with some spiciness from the rye. THere is also some chocolate and coffee notes. Medium body with moderate carbonation.

Bottle. Pours a nice mahogany but too lively. Beige head sits nicely atop the beverage. Flavor is chocolate coffee powder, floral grass. Tingly mouthfeel that leavs a lingering film. Not bad but one is enough. Also, is this a malty beer? Is it a hoppy beer? Settle for one or the other guys!

Deep brown with red accents. Nice tan lace but thinnish head. Light yet soft texture. Big roasty-burnt flavors and aromas made me think of chocolate and tar. Faint molasses sweetness. Black licorice bite without the anise aroma. Charcoal in the aftertaste. Malts were rather husky. Snappy hops were flighty, as they seemed to come and go too fast. Overall, I thought it had some nice things going on, such as the strong roast and bold grain bill ... but there were some objectionable things as well, such as the finish, which seemed a bit stark and bitter. Although, as the beer warmed, flavors did seem to improve, and a syrupy sweetness seemed to surface, which helped to balance things out.

This beer was surprisingly viscous at the pour, but did not come across as overly thick or cloying in the mouthfeel. This is a surprisingly malty lager. Lots of spice from the rye, some slight astringency. A very light roast backs up the rest. Pretty tasty beer.

Dark brown with ruby highlights. Smoky chocolate aroma. Smooth, slightly sweet with some bitterness. Very smooth and big bodied.

Dark brown almost black color with a deep red hue. Pretty interesting look. Reminds me a bit of a lite porter and has some chocolate and bittersweet flavors in there. Aroma has a little cocoa to accentuate the chocolate experience I am getting. The back of the palate has a little bit of red fruit and the finish is on the surprising side of bitter.

Bomber via trade with Ibrew2or3, shared with my girlfriend cyn, who has a thing for Rye beer. Pours a rich black with a 2 finger tan head. Nose is sweet rich and malty, with a big punch of rye. Taste is sweet and smooth and very rich and malty.

A cola-brown body shows deep and dark at the center, translucent at the far edges. Creamy and tan in color, the medium-sized head displays good retention, leaving nice swaths of velvety lacing on the glass. The aroma is unique, a distinct rye overtone showing along with cocoa powder, burnt caramel, mild earthy spice, and hints of molasses. Flavors follow suit, cocoa powder sweetness countered with earthy hop notes, rye grains lending a unique freshness to the equation. There is a hint of nuttiness within, as well. Substantial and creamy on the palate, it drinks easy, but feels quite full bodied for a relatively low ABV beer. This is tasty stuff, and serves as a nice break from the mundane.

Last bottle from Wine World, Whew! Pours a deep dark red with a medium creamy head. Scent is roasted malts and chocolate. Taste is dark chocolate and rye with coffee. Nice.

puzzl (3259) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 14, 2009
Bottled, sent as an extra from someone in a trade. Straight up, this is the creamiest beer I have ever drank in my life. It is almost unreal. The head itself is like whipped cream, but even after that has faded the body remains so utterly smooth and creamy... mmmm. Lovin’ it. Great flavor, with mild spices, rye, roast, espresso and a touch of dark malt bitterness. Excellent.
