Six is a dark rye beer with layered flavors including chocolate, caramel, pepper, wood, cherry and tropical fruit. It starts semi-dry and smooth and finishes fully dry and tart with a small bite from the hops. The overall balance of the Six makes it easy to pair with richly prepared meats along with many harder cheeses.
Malts: organic pale, caramel, rye, black
Unmalted: rolled rye
Hops: magnum, tettnanger

JorisPPattyn (8793) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUN 8, 2013
Huge cream-coloured head, leaving lace over unclear dark rusty-brown beer. Creamy nose, dark malts obvious (even Maillard it would seem), green leaves and markedly gassy. Bitterish-dry. Leafy flavour, and one not unlike oatmeal. Dry cocoa powder, faintly bready - oatmeal/ryebread? Feels quite spritzy, even fiery. Obviously well-carbonated. Not much body. Rustic? Lacking (a bit of) character, rather. Still, far from bad.

Theydon_Bois (14283) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2013
Tap at Upright, 25/05/13. Dark mahogony brown with a thin beige head. Nose is dark malt, grain, hint of toffee, grass. Taste comprises dark toffee, grain, dark malt, light sugars, woody notes, fruits. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, light bitterness in the finish. Drinkable but on the bland side, not one I’d revisit.

Dogbrick (9998) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Sample from firkin at the 6th Annual Rogue Firkin Fest at Green Dragon. Hazy dark amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of dark fruit, toffee and hops. Medium-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, ripe fruit and herbal hops. The finish is fruity with a rye and hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Bottle from Market of Choice, Eugene. Pours a medium-dark brown, lots of light tan head. Aroma is rich, with the rye coming in sweet and caramel-like along with general malty character. Body is lively and slippery-sweet, finishes kind of like a rye doppelbock in terms of an intensifying sweetness backed by a slightly more bitter aftertaste.

GuillaumeCL (344) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2013
Pours a clear deep orange/brown with a whole ton of tan head that dissipates fairly quickly. Smell is fantastic, apples, citrus, a bit of spice, and just a hint of toffee. Palate is on the lighter side of medium bodied with good carbonation. Taste is pretty good, slightly sweet and tart at first, then gets a good bitter hit before relaxing into a less bitter and slightly tart aftertaste. Quite nice, wish I had more of them, and wish it was just a bit more tart.

krumbum (752) - truckee, California, USA - MAY 1, 2013
If rye grew on trees this beer would smell like it’s mulch. Is deep amber color worthy of a resin that would contain dinosaur DNA. The rich peppery tartness is so dry and refreshing at the same time, Like a wave receding leaves you ready for another sip.

Boutip (5346) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 1, 2013
Bottle: Poured a dark dirty brown color ale with a generous head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of caramel malt with light spicy notes and some herbal notes are also discernable. Taste is also dominated by caramel malt with light chocolate presence, some spicy notes probably originating from the rye with some herbal notes and dry at the end. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Somewhat dryer then I was expecting with quite a bit of complexity.

humlelala (1172) - DENMARK - APR 28, 2013
(sample courtesy of Yespr) Looks great - clear amber body with plenty of lacy, white head. Good retention. Aroma is rather subdued grassy hops - somewhat disappointing. Oily texture, medium body and carbonation with a slightly sweet finish. Flavour is grassy and slightly sweet. Looks can be deceiving.

Ungstrup (31416) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 27, 2013
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a laziong beige head. The aroma has notes of spicy hops, tropical fruits, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of rye, spices, hops, and tropical fruits, leading to a dry bitter finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.
