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.

750 mL bottle shared with ahuds58. Pours a rich chestnut hue with smallish bubbly head. Lovely, if subtle, nose with notes of sourdough bread, rye, cherry and plum, light tobacco, coffee, and earthy guava. Flavor starts fruity with apricot, mango, and rich cherry, along with earthy hops and nice dark spiciness. Maybe a bit overcarbonated, but refreshing and lovely overall.

Bottle, 07/05/2012. Pours a muddy brown, dense beige head, effervescent bubbles. Aroma of rye bread; spicy, nutty chocolate, caramel and light, slightly tart fruitiness. Taste is mostly similar: rye grain upfront with nutty caramel, pepper, touch of red fruity tartness, and a long, dry, bitter rye finish. Full, round palate. Didn’t get any of the more funky elements some are reporting, this may be a fresher bottle? Anyways, not too bad.

madvike (2917) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Bottle - Pours murky mahogany with a huge foamy off white head. Nose is lightly spicy white pepper, light tropical fruit, and a real light breadiness. Nice and dry. Taste brings some dark rye bread in, with a bit of bitter dark chocolate, light grassy, herbal hopping, and a bit of fruity sweetness. Light and well-carbonated. Good stuff.

Nice saison thats a bit heavy handed on the rye. Taste is very strong rye with nice peppery woody notes from the saison. Dry smooth finish.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2012 On tap at Gourmet Haus. Rich aroma of wet dark grain. Subtle spicy roast. Mahogany with creamy taupe head. Nice lacing down glass. Flavor is spicy and roast chocolate. Full bitter finish. Dryish throughout with astringent finish. Well carbonated and chewy yeast/rye medium-full mouthfeel. Roast persists on the late palate.

joeneugs (3498) - Livermore, California, USA - JUN 9, 2012
750 bottle. It pours a dark orange/ruby color with a nice off white head. The aroma has lots of rye malt with a touch of caramel and some spicy hops. The flavor is rather savory with some toast and dense, grainy rye malt. Theres a bit of cherry, bread and lots of peppery hops toward the finish. Pretty dry and full bodied. This reminds me of one of those freshly baked multi grain breads. Pretty nice, especially paired with the right meal.

ACHops (761) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 2, 2012
On tap @ Urban Family. Pours a watery caramel brown. Aroma is sweet malts and just a hint of hops. Taste is rich and complex: oatmeal, toffee, dark chocolate, tangy pineapple hops, lightly roasted coffee. The rye shows itself on the back in the dry and hoppy finish. I can’t remember this much flavor from such a thin beer. I was expecting a Saison, so this was a surprising treat.
