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.

JorisPPattyn (9602) - Ursel, - 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.

bartlebier (3556) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2016
75cl, 2016 vintage - Nov2016, B&Co. - An odd yet workable recipe yielding a tasty mix of autumnal Belgian dubbel (ripe orchard fruit, compote), a musty saison leafiness and some rye spice with hefty body supporting it. Earthy, "organic" and subtle use of earthy EU-pedigree hops. Flourishes of iron, liquorice, quince peel, caramel to keep it interesting. Remarkably demure and mature for a US saison. Could pass off as a new, Fantome-inspired, slightly polished dark saison brewed on Belgian soil.

Six is a great rendition of a rye beer and it delivers in many areas. The aroma just climbs out of the glass and the burst you get from the flavor as it hits the mouth is just as satisfying.

Draft sample at Oedipus International Beer Festival 2016. Amsterdam, The Netherlands. 02.07.2016. Pour it amber color with big white head. Aroma tomato, cherries, woody feel, nice. Taste sweet fruity, vanilla, oak woody feel, some bourbon feel, just a pinch sourish finish. Pretty nice balanced.

On tap at Darbys Gastown. Pours a dark copper with a solid tan head. Aroma is spices, fruity, some caramel and tea notes. Taste is sweetish, pretty similar to aroma, but with lots of roasted malt notes. Roasted malt, hoppy bitterness aftertaste.

JStax (5634) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUL 10, 2016
750 ml bottle poured into a snifter. The beer is a dark brown to black with a huge head of beige foam. The beer reminds me a lot of rootbeer. I get a lot of herbal notes and sugary, root nuances. Sweet overall with moderate spice notes coming through. Medium body and medium carbonation.

On tap at the Oedipus International Beer Festival 2016, Amsterdam - day#1 (02-Jul-2016). Reddish brown colour with a medium sized beige coloured head. Aroma of summer fruits and milk chocolate. Medium body and carbonation. Taste of soft fruit - a little cherry and rye. Tart, sweet, with light bitterness. Not bad, but an acquired taste.

Zlotta (2365) - Hagen, GERMANY - JUL 3, 2016
Sampled from tap at the Oedipus International Beer Festival 2016. Clear, dark brownish red with a massive, creamy, tan head. Sourish, slightly funky and a little fruity aroma of caramel, wild honey, strawberry jam and elderberries. Moderately sour, slightly fruity and a little funky taste of caramel, wild honey, elderberries, red fruits and some cinnamon, followed by a short, slightly tart and quite spicy finish. Medium body, slightly creamy and a little effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Good!

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2016 Delish! Caramely malts and dark spicy saison notes. Complex and heavy but finishes quite light. Very good.
