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

sample on Nov 6, 2008. pours a dark brown with a bit of white head. the aroma is a bit different and not all that special. some rye on the nose. soft on the sides of the palate, very smoky with the rye on top. a little thin overall, but a unique beer that is worth trying.

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.

Kevin (2047) - New Mexico, USA - JUN 4, 2009
lightly carbonated red black pour. the head sticks nicelty to the side of the glass. a real pleasure to the eye.spiced grass nose that seems peppery and metallic?thick like a milkshake, i can tell there is a lot of rye in this.the peppery hop note is strong in the flavor, more meaty than sweet.just a hint of light roast in the finish. i’m surprised by some of these robust flavors.a bit of gum and ivy flavors in here, the peppery rye is all over everything, finish reminds me of arrogant bastard, , and unfortunately that’s not really a good thing. tastes like bubblegum, nickels, allspice, and hops. i like experiments and i will continue to try them, but i just won’t have this one again.5 6 3 2 8

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - MAY 25, 2009
Bomber from JCB, who we all know rocks out! Deep brown pour with a huge beige head. Nose is light chocolate and nuts, rye is pretty apparent. Excellent lacing! Sweet brown sugar flavors, chocolate and rye. Comes off dry. I liked this a lot!

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 25, 2008
Pours a dark, dark brown in the glass that has definite ruby tints when held up to light. The head is one-finger tall, tan and recedes very quickly to a ring with little lacing. The aroma is big on smoked malts and rye. There is a hint of sweetness and a bit of hops but very secondary. Coffee was also floating around as well. The taste has a sweeter tilt to it with some sweet malts and a little dark fruit in addition to the big rye and smoked malt backbone. The smoke lingers through the finish along with a bit of a hop kick. The mouthfeel was completely unexpected and super smooth. The carbonation was fairly low but complemented the silky smooth palate. Much, much thicker than I expected. This was much better than I expected and very drinkable. Highly recommended!

RSRIZZO (1850) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2008
Pours thick with a hazy brown coming out of the bottle. Carbonation is good creating a thick tight tan head. Aroma is roasted with a faint smoke scent and a hint of alcohol. Taste is rich and bitter. Starting with a bold/medium body it goes down smooth with a rich feel. Finish is a quick roasted flavor then a hint of hops and a bold bitterness. After taste is more bitterness. Its not bad, but not very complex the bitterness seems to dominate.
