COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Six is a dark rye beer with layered flavors including chocolate, caramel, pepper, wood, cherry and tropical fruit.

The overall balance of the Six makes it easy to pair with richly prepared meats along with many harder cheeses.

bluejacket74 (1676) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - JUL 3, 2013
750 ml bottle. Served in a Unibroue tulip, the beer pours a burnt orange/brown color with a couple inch light tan head that actually kept growing slowly for a few minutes after the initial pour. It took a while for the head to settle down before I could start drinking it. There’s also a lot of lacing. Aroma is yeasty and fruity, it smells like pears, rye/dark bread, herbs, cloves, and apples. The brew tastes like dark bread/rye, pears, apples, cloves, caramel malt, and some dark fruit. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit slick and is well carbonated. The carbonation is soft which helps make it easy to drink. I liked this, and I wouldn’t mind trying it again in the future. $11.99 a bottle.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - JUL 2, 2013
750 ml bottle. A cloudy medium to dark brown beer, with a huge, frothy, lightly lacing, fully lasting off-white head. The aroma is moderately malty (toasted/roasted dark bread, caramel, milk chocolate), lightly hoppy (flowers), moderately yeasty (basement, dough), with notes of rye, pineapple, hint of ripe fruits and banana. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, not a very long finish with moderate bitterness, lightly alcoholic. A pleasant Saison-Dark Belgian Ale. Rye is evident and nice to taste and smell. Perhaps only a little bit thin and with a short finish, but overall I enjoyed it a lot.

jgb9348 (5321) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 19, 2013
Deep dark brown coloured body with a muddy and ruby tinted glow and a nice three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of malt, rye, alcohol, light earth and a small hint of spices. Medium-bodied; Assertive earthy and malt flavours with a lot of rye notes and a decent amount of caramel and toffee. Aftertaste shows some complexity with yeast noticeable, a bit of alcohol and the slightest hint of chocolate. Overall, a decent beer, but not enough complexity and depth to make it a great beer - plus the flavour profile strong enough for the style. I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased from Made in Oregon in Portland, Oregon (PDX - Terminal D Location) on 28-April-2013 for US$10.95 sampled at home in Washington on 17-June-2013.

Bottle @ Mikkeller&Friends - Farmhouse tasting. Pours clear amber with a creamy beige small head. Aroma is rye bread, toasted malt, light burnt caramel, plum, herbal, anise and light celery. Taste is light+ sweet, bitter and very light tart. Body is light, texture is thin/watery and carbonation is Finishes bitter and herbal. The is truly a style-bastard. I really enjoy the rye but

JorisPPattyn (8915) - 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 (15000) - 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 (10421) - 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 (797) - 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.
