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.

Dark chestnut pour with a 3-4 finger, creamy yellow-beige head. Aroma is loaded with fruity stone fruit and berry notes, dry roasted nuts and spicy hops. Flavor is nutty stone fruity up front followed by husky grain, roast, dark chocolate, burnt sugar and bready notes, pine, spicy hops and sharp fruity esters to the finish. Medium body, fairly dry throughout and lightly carbonated. Pretty good overall, lots of stuff going on here, but it doesn’t really fit together that well.

Thx! for sharing. Sampled draft @ De Molen during Borefts 2015. Day 1. Dark amber, mocha head on the sides. Nose is oily herbal hops, thick licorice, cough syrup. Taste is oily pine resin, hops, licorice, some Belgian qualities, nuts, zest, oily resin, dough. Oily leaves, malty body. Not entirely to my taste but interesting & oddly Belgian in an original way.

Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, caramel, sweetness, molasses, grass and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty and bitter. A malty and fizzy brew.

dmac (4849) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 14, 2015
750ml of old beer. Poured an ugly brown bidy with lots of visible floaties and a fizzy beige head. Aroma of old fruit cake, bad dates and fig, chocolate and dough with a tinge of alcohol. Flavor is lots of cardboard, newspaper, old dates, bad figs, dough, chocolate and some bread crusts. Blah, wase of $$$.
