an interesting and somewhat random collaboration it seems. whats the connection here? the beer is really good despite that randomness, and despite its age, definitely some time on this bottle! came out years ago, dont think it was brewed more than once. lots of dark rye malt on this, not just a dark beer with pale rye malt, but actually a midnight type rye, really interesting malt that is really underutilized out there. at least it sure seems like thats whats in here, it doesnt have the dusty black peppery character of the pale rye, more of a bitter depth to the rye in here, its really nice. some heavy dark chocolate notes too, lots of hop bitterness remaining even after all this time, and a real earthiness thats uncommon in beer this dark and strong. hints of coffee and milk chocolate too, lots of bitterness, minerals, and pencil shavings, very interesting complexion. slick almost greasy mouthfeel, still viscous but more slippery than heavy, kind of unique. a one of a kind beer for sure, interesting recipe, very much more the nogne o style here than the terrapin, from what i know about the two breweries. if you have a bottle, crack it soon, i cant see this evolving or improving much from here on out.

Chocolaty notes. Doesn't retain much of a head. With an aggressive pour, it retains a nice mocha-chocolaty colored one for a little bit. Very good.

Black with no ruby see through. Thick dark tan head with some ruby on the ring. Prunes and caramel notes and flavors. Dry rye finish. Rich tongue coating, velvety smooth, medium plus mouthfeel. Quite good.
