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

decaturstevo’s 2008 Zapit Tasing Tasting. Sample from a bottle thanks to Butters/SpringsLicker. Dark black with lots of red hints, thin tan head. Burnt roasty malt aroma, some rye breadiness and peppery spice. Taste is rye bread, more strong spiciness and burnt/roasted dry rye malt.

OldGrowth (2831) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - DEC 16, 2008
pint at Tylers Apex. Good aroma, Toasted malt, kind of smokey, salty chocolate, nutty, Brownish black color, small head ok lace, Bitter sweet flavor, rye bite with a minor burnt streak. Lite body, creamy mouth feel, bitter finish. Tasty, the rye bite really cuts into the sweetness of it. I have had a few of these before finally taking notes on it.

jrob21 (2771) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 9, 2008
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.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Bottle from Sams in D-town. Brown pour with a fizzy brown head. Earthy & roast aroma. Medium bodied. Roast, spice, and chocolate balls. Slightly metallic on the finish I was expecting a stronger offering, considering its price tag....

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.

Shag (2649) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - NOV 18, 2008
This poured a dark brown color with a beige head. The aroma contains some rye along with some chocolate and marshmellows. The flavor contains rye, chocolate, caramel, and oddly more marshmellows. The finish is a mixture of sourness but more sweet than anything. Overall an different and pretty good beer.

Bottle in trade from MSchae1017. Thanks man! Pours a dark brown color with a light beige head. Smell is lightly nutty, rye bread and coffee. Taste is dark, roasty rye, zesty and hoppy with a light coffee touch and perhaps the faintest touch of lager yeast. Rich, lightly syrupy body and refreshing carbonation. Perfect mouthfeel and lasting hoppiness and bitterness make this a really under rated beer in my book.
