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.

GT (10000) - San Diego, 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

750 mL bottle shared by ebone1988. The pour is a darker brown/light black with a thicker light khaki head and a lot of soapy lace as it falls down to a thick collar and film. The aroma is definitely heavy on spicy rye. There is a bit of chocolate malt and a light roastiness. It’s got a little bit of a Porter thing going on that I’m definitely not a fan of. The flavor is much of the same. There is a spicy rye and a chocolate malt that drinks like a porter for sure. There is a viscosity and a bitterness about it that isn’t terrible. The mouth feel is robust and brightly carbonated with a bitter roast and spicy rye aftertaste. This isn’t that good at all. Ugh.

3.4
ebone1988 (1849) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - FEB 12, 2017
Bottle shared with koleminer20. Aroma is rye, spices, slight tart, roasted malt, weird. Appearance is dark brown red, light brown head, would be clear if it wasn’t so dark. Taste is rye, spices, roasted malt, slight cocoa, definitely no saison qualities. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, roasted malt and rye aftertaste. Overall, just weird. It’s a porter with rye, it says it’s a saison on the label.

3.9
bartlebier (3946) - 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.

4.5
RodJBeerVenture (12) - Independence, USA - NOV 25, 2016
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.

3.8
markoijelena (3113) - Belgrade / Amsterdam, SERBIA - SEP 1, 2016
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.

3.6
beerplace (1599) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 18, 2016
On tap at Darby’s Gastown. Pours a dark copper with a solid tan head. Aroma is spices, fruity, some caramel and tea notes. Taste is sweet’ish, pretty similar to aroma, but with lots of roasted malt notes. Roasted malt, hoppy bitterness aftertaste.
