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

Brew One 2008

11/20/2008: Left Hand Terra-Rye’zd is deep brown in color with a biege color. The aroma and flavor contain chocolate, dark fruits, and a hint of roast. It finishes dry and spicy with some roast and mild coffee. It has a medium-full body and a creamy, soft palate. Overall this is a pretty good beer.

1 pint, 6 fl. oz. bottle. Rating #99 for this beer.

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.

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.

puzzl (3257) - 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.

auerbrau (3197) - Ithaca, New York, USA - AUG 19, 2009
22oz Bottle. Pours a caramel-brown, with a red fringe and a nice tall creamy cocoa-powder-tinted head. Aroma gives a generous caramel and browned toast. A bit of milk sugar. Nice, brown-ale-like and decent. Flavor is snappy. A bright crisp rye punch. Chewy. Nice lager crispness. Cool and very smooth. An interesting lager, blending the sharper rye flavors, with a prickle of hops and the nice, well-malted caramel profile. Unique and enjoyable. Thanks Sean!

2/3/2010 Received in trade from KarrHeel03, thanks for the opportunity. Pours a dark brown color with beautiful garnet highlights and a good sized tightly bubbled tannish head that persists forever. Smells of cherries and plums, chocolate, caramel, rye bread and a slight spiciness as well. Very little hops left, but I believe this bottle is almost 2 years old so they’ve surely faded. Taste is a creamy chocolaty spicy fruity affair. Definitely a unique take on a black lager. Smooth with chocolate and brown sugar notes up front meld towards a fruity spicy rye character that lingers long after every sip. Super creamy mouthfeel, Medium body and carbonation level. I really enjoyed this one. I wonder how this would have been fresher, but I thoroughly enjoyed it as is.
