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-ryezd 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

Dark black pour, barely any light shines through it. Huge frothy tan colored head. Very light aroma, malty and chocolate. Crisp body and mouthfeel. Nutty, malty flavor with bitter chocolate in the middle. Slightly metallic off-taste towards the finish. Rye does lend a spicy flavor. Hops are citrusy and bitter finish lingers. Pretty good.

This one flopped for me. Looked like a glass of pepsi with a nice grainy aroma. Flavor was not so great and the finish tasted like i was a drinking cheap beer from a can and at $9 a bomber, i would hardly call this cheap beer. This was a let down.

A very unique and tasty brew. A blend of the milk stout and ale. Almost a scotch ale, but much darker. Malt, chocolate, and coffee are evident and hops are present but balanced. Really exquisite.

This collaboration beer by Terrapin and Left Hand promised to be brew one of the midnight project. I am generally pretty impressed with the individual offerings of both breweries, so a beer where both combined their talents was immediately tempting, when spotted at Bullock’s in Marietta.

The beer poured out dark brown like mahogany, and looked translucent below the extremely stable, two finger thick, creamy head. The smell was milder than I was anticipating, as this smelled like a standard issue brown ale. The toasty, nutty, and caramelized smell was pleasant, but lacked the spiciness of rye that was so proudly a part of this beer’s name. The taste was bready and sweet up front, and astringent and drying in the middle. The finish is where the spicy flavor made the use of Rye apparent. The beer leaned much more on the malts than most other offerings from Terrapin, and was probably a lot closer to the Left Hand Rye Bock in the general approach. Unfortunately, this beer was noticeable thinner than the Rye Bock, and felt a lot less bold overall. That being said, this was a very easy to approach beer, and would probably go well with a lot of red meat dishes.

Dirty dark brown in color. Rye nose. Rye flavors. Wait a minute.... maybe I dont like rye. This beer doesnt excite me. Everything about it wants me to pour it down the drain.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a small light tan head. Aroma of spicy rye, rich chocolate, and light roasted malt. Taste is the same as aroma with a touch of sweet caramel. Medium mouthfeel with a moderate amount of bitterness. Very good

Burning fireball crimson in color, a little light in color. Tangy rye nose with some fruity yeast esters. Creamy. Mildly roasty in flavor, spicy rye, copious citric hops and some fruit. Fairly clean.

22oz bomber. Pours a deep, dark, red-brown with magnificent highlights of deep, dark, mahogany and ruby. The head pours thick and light tan in color, fluffy and pillowy. It fades slowly leaving large sheets of lace on the glass. The aroma is chocolate, subtle hops, bready/grainy (pilsner malt), caramel, and lager yeast. The flavor starts bittersweet with some chocolate, a lot of spicy rye, roasted grain like burnt toast, mild caramel sweetness, and fruity hop flavor (grapefruit peel). At mid-palate the flavors are strong with rye, chocolate, and a nice balancing bitterness (noble hops?). The finish is mostly dry with a firm hop bitterness and some roasted flavors like bitter cocoa. The aftertaste is a blend of continental pilsner malt and coffee. The mouthfeel is crisp, medium-full in body, and creamy. Overall - a fantastic schwarzbier that is just beautiful in all aspects. I need to go buy a case of this stuff!

Some malty flavor to start. As the beer warms, the hops begin to step out and eventually dominate the palate. This is a full-bodied beer.
