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

raphael (878) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 18, 2012
Muted aromas of malt, rye, blackp epper. Woody hop-tingle in the mouth, roast malt, distant molasses--served up dry. good balance of carbonation and weight. Very well done, crisp, clean, subdued but still interesting hints,

750 ml bottle. Lots of caramel in the nose, I did not expect that with the rye in the beer. The rye is very noticeable in the flavor, as well as a slight tartness, caramel, citrus. An interesting beer.

Aubrey (3431) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JAN 9, 2012
Surprisingly delicious beer. Doesnít smack you in the face with flavor or intensity, but after a few sips it seems to get deeper and more complex in a curiously subtle way. Notes of multigrain bread, yeast esters, toffee, chocolate and earthy-herbal hops weave in and out of one another seamlessly. Itís the perfect blend of flavors and itís perfectly balanced. I drank the entire bottle myself and never got bored with it. In fact, it just made me want more.

KyotoLefty (6357) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 2, 2012
750 ml bottle. Big rye nose, acid, slightly acetic, light esters, fruit. Dark brown with lace. Sour flavor with rye, caramel, nuts, vinegar. The clean, sour edge is nice, but maybe not enough malt behind it. Hoppy, bitter finish. Huge rye flavor is interesting.

reebtogi (4155) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 29, 2011
750ml bottle poured amber in color with a 2 finger off-white head that retained well but left little lacing behind. Aroma is light chocolate with some fruit and wood. Taste is light fruity and malty sweet notes with a mild hoppy bitterness with traces of woodiness. A decent beer with a medium body and soft carbonation but I was expecting much more from this one.

notalush (4839) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 16, 2011
Tap at Upright - an interesting brew, to be sure - hazy amber - nose is moderately acidic, with spicy rye, yeast, cloves, spices - flavor is the same - a little acidic up front, followed by rich toasty maltiness, floral hops, light clove, spicy phenols - crisp, gingerbread finish - lingering acidity - interesting.

jrallen34 (3483) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2011
bottle... dark mahogany that almost looks black, cool color, light tan head, a two finger cap sticks around for several minutes, not much lacing... interesting aroma, caramel, light cherries, wood, a bit spicy... taste is all over the place, wood is harsh, peppery, watery, oats, grainy bland finish... not a winner

5000 (6265) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle:   Deep burnt caramel, brownish of sorts, large light beige head, nice lacing.   Bright barnish nose, definite rye.   Rich maltiness on the tongue, rye, and a bit of straw/hay.   Feels a bit spritzy and bubbley.   Strong rye from start to finish.   Mild sweetness, lingering barnishness.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, albiet very effervescent.   Smidgen of a chocolate like malt on the finish.   Overall its fairly tasty, heavy on the rye, malty, spritzy, with a rustic barnish like finish.   Maybe could use a little more sweetness, but otherwise enjoyable.

Tripplebrew (775) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - NOV 6, 2011
Pours a cloudy brown with thick tan tinged head that sticks. Aroma is pepper and cherry. Flavor is a mix of herbs, sour cherry bread and caramel. Definitely a sour note to the beer. Body is light with a lot of carbonation.

Are you kidding me? This beer is so beautiful! Wood, cherry, sour, musty. A lot of sour. Thin body. Donít pass this one up.
