COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

750ml bottle, shared by dwm1034. Thanks! Pours a deep, dark amber-brown color with a big tan head. Aroma is malty, bready, maybe a little orange citrus. Medium on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, caramel, fruity, tart cherry, some pineapple hops, with a light fruity finish. Surprised at how much my take agrees with the description. Very tasty.

hayduke (3563) - Eureka, California, USA - DEC 16, 2012
On draft at THE LOCAL beer bar in Eureka, CA, Pours a rich dark brown with a big and creamy light tan head that had great retention and left excellent lacing rings. The nose is of dark roasted malt and dark ripe fruit. Medium plus in body. Good rich mouthfeel. The flavor is very rich with some chocolate, ripe fruit and some wood. Finish is funky, and quite dry A really tasty and enjoyable brew.

Bottle at home with my dad. Pour is deep brown with a huge, off-white head and great lacing. This one is way over-carbonated; the foam just continues to grow and is starting to come out of my glass. Rye, bread, citrusy hops, floral, and soapy aroma. Taste is toffee, light roast, dark cherries, somewhat belgian yeasty, citrus, and soapy hops with a light bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel with high carbonation. Pretty tasty stuff.

nimbleprop (5505) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 15, 2012
750ml bottle pours a hazy, light brown with some thin, white head. Nose is fairly neutral, some bread, some yeast, light nuts. Flavor is similar, lightly sweet, lightly nutty, some bread, a little doughy. Medium bodied, dry finish. A session beer, no question, but I was hoping for a bit more complexity.

Sweet caramel and rye nose with a touch of raisin. Taste is light to moderately sweet, lots of dark fruit, light cola, light chocolate and eye bread. Decent.

Bottle courtesy of BrainLair. Pours a thick brown pour with a slight orange tint. Thin tan head. Nutty toasted grain on the nose. Flavor is dry and bitter. Peppery with faint notes of chocolate and tropical fruit. Lightly tart hoppy finish.

GT2 (9207) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 7, 2012
750mL thanks to EricE. Pours a full hazed deep brune with sheen, dense, yellowish foam. Thick, sheety lacing. Nose is a bit vegetal, tomato soup, celery stalk. Taste is heavy malt cereal, moving to lemon tea and finishing very whole wheat crackery. Palate is still a bit vegetal, mildly tart, freezer burn flavors. Hmm. As it warms, some chocolate comes through with mild banana esters. Improving to near dunkelweizen. Still odd. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

callmemickey (3422) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Dark red brown body, healthy sized off-white head, a smattering of lacing. Nose is bold, with characteristic of earthy/spicy notes from the rye, some caramel and pale malts come through. A little crackery. Flavor presents a similar profile deep, earthy impression with a little fruit and cocoa. Medium bodied. Noticeable, but not overwhelming bitterness. A little prickly.

DavoleBomb (1513) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2012
Poured into a tulip. 5.0 A: Lightly hazed deep mahogany color. Two fingers of creamy/pillowy beige head. Retention is very good and a thick, juicy ring of lacing is left. 4.0 S: Big caramel component to start things off. Spicy earthy rye, earthy hops, and pepper follow. Toasty with berry, orange, and apple notes. A touch of cocoa powder. 3.5 T: Starts off with caramel, cocoa powder, and plenty of earthy hoppiness. Spicy earthy rye follows with toasty malts and pepper from the yeast. Orange and apple fruitiness. The berries don’t manifest in the taste. Moderate bitterness. Good flavors, but it’s a little dry for my tastes and the overall flavor intensity is on the lower end. 3.5 M: Lighter medium body. A bit too much carbonation. The carbonation is aggressive without being very spritzy. Otherwise, this has a good creaminess. 3.5 D: It’s hard to pick one between Five and Six as which one I like better. They are both tasty, but they are fully different. This has some good flavors, but is missing something in the taste. Worth a try, but probably not another buy.
