Notes: "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."

Bought at Liquor Shed.

Pours a clear reddish brown, great head of almost tan foam, pretty good lacing.

I smell pitted fruit, rye, caramel malt. Overall, definitely on the malty side.

Rye is upfront and somewhat spicy. Caramel malt adds some sweet notes, fruit is subtle, get some nuttiness.

Medium body, carbonation is spritzy.

Enjoyable. Alcohol does provide some warming.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Look: It pours brown with a brown head. The head is full and head retention is excellent.

Smell: There are a lot of aroma notes in balance. Chocolate, caramel, rye, and wood are all well represented. There are some background notes of cherry and low citrus notes. There is a bit of dank in the background notes as well.

Taste: The rye flavors are the most prominent with chocolate, caramel and wood given complex flavor development. The are some cherry notes and a hint of citrus in the background.

Feel: It is moderately full in the body and kind of creamy. The finish is smooth and semi dry.

Overall, this is a wonderful rye beer with a good combination of flavors to support the overall presentation.

Interesting enough for me to want to try a second Upright saison... but #6 is not integrated enough to be that ale.
Two points...
First, #6 is too different from the saison to be one. A saison could have this many hops, but not also this much rye.
Second, this did not complement two different meals. It overwhelmed a pasta with mushroom sauce for dinner. Then the next day, it overwhelmed my soup for lunch. #6 has a problematic after-taste. It needs to respect food. To its credit, #6 did go OK with a Jarlsberg... but many undistinguished beers do also.

I liked Upright's label. I like how they seem to be adapting the Belgian village brewing tradition in an urban setting that, also, is the world's hop-growing craft-brewing capital. But, they did too much to #6.
My advice: less hops, less rye, more wheat; and most important, make sure your ales place nice with food if you want to stay within the Belgian tradition.

Bottle to becher pint glass, the appearance was a fairly dark red to murky brown color with a finger's worth of white foamy head that slid off at a good pace. Mild stringy lace ran here and there.
The aroma had some of the sweet to spicy rye up front involving some light floral sweetness to ruddy almost burnt milk and dark chocolate tones flowing into some dark fruits. Light woodiness, moderate amount of sweet dried oats and just a whiff of coffee.
The flavor moderately blended the prior aromas stealthily into some cherry and mango sweetness. Light black pepper was noted here. Mellow aftertaste of the wood, dark fruit and floral sweet qualities.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sipping quality about it. Noticeable pepper marks a bit of harshness along my tongue but not necessarily overbearing. Carbonation felt spot on. ABV felt as projected by the brewer.
Overall, pretty nice rye beer or was this supposed to be a saison? Did I hear that somewhere? I'm sorry if so, next time I'll put this in a tulip if this was some sort of saison.

A: pours a deep, dark, red brown (roodbruin? roodbruin!) /oaky/mahogany color, with a frothy beige 3 finger head, nice lacing
S: smells of raisins and chocolate immediately, with notes of cherry and plum, with pruney notes and subtle rich coffee qualities. there is a definite note of pomegranate juice on the nose. PS: Also some roasted malt and an oaty character.
T: wow the chocolate and raisin are strong here, they emerge immediately, deep and rich, dominating the first impression, subsequently, there is a good (though certainly not overstated) tartness, that serves as a pleasant undercurrent to the dominating flavors. there is a maltiness too that comes through after, the initial fruitiness has come through.
M: intensely dry, just like I like it. Well. Attenuated.
O: I wish that this had more alcohol in it, because I would be hesitant to sit on anything under like 8% that's not a wild ale. that being said, this is interesting (in a good way!) though to me, I could stand to see more diversity in the ester profile, I get plum, raisin, and the thickness of pomegranate juice, but that with the chocolate notes makes it a tad overpowering, which, I think; can cause some finer notes to be missed. That being said I love saisons, and hope (someday, somehow) to start a brewery of my own with saisons being the entire base of the year round lineup, so I love seeing different (more traditional) things done with the style. I don't know when I would recommend drinking this honestly, there's not really a particularly good time, maybe when you fancy a porter, I don't know, but it is a well executed beer that is certainly worth a try, if only for the sake of education. Prost and a votre sante!

PS: don't really get rye here, but that being said, I am (personally) most accustomed to taking in rye in lighter colored beers and less in dark ones so that might be why. Honestly, I also can't finish a 750 of this, it would be better in 330's

This nice little brew is a first for me from this brewery----here she goes!
From the 750 ml bottle in a snifter. This nice rye saison pours a deep
muddied brown tinged mahogany with a nice head of off white to tan foam
that subsides to a thick ring, thin light pool, and subtle lacing. Nose of
spicy rye, cocoa, subtle stone fruit notes of cherry, earthy yeast, and subtle
hops. Flavors exceed the nose with a WOW factor for the style---cocoa and
light cherry mingle nicely with light yeast notes. Dark malts with lightly spicy
rye tingle with mild herbal hops on the rear making for a fantastically balanced
ale. Nice mouth feel, smooth, moderately dry on the finish, and lightly carbonated.
Balanced, balance, balance.....perfect for this style and a mighty fine find.

Growler from the brewery.

A clear very dark brown with reddish highlights and a thin, beige head that recedes to a ring. The nose is decent, This is among the grainier saisons I've had, with rye, caraway seed, dark wheat and some unsweetened cocoa as well. There's a noticeable hop character, bitter, rather leafy and moderately minty. The palate opens dry and grainy with a blend of rye, bitter hops and some cocoa. An increasing amount of sweetness is perceived on the mid-palate, with some caramel noticeable. Drying on the finish with a lingering leafy hop bitterness, mind grainy tannins and some cocoa. The blend of darker malt flavors and super dry finish don't entirely work for me, but this beer is solid nonetheless

Type: 16-oz. draft
Glass: Joseph James pint glass
From: Naked City Pizza in Paradise (Las Vegas,), Nev.
Price: $7
Purchased: March 25, 2016
Consumed: March 25, 2016
Misc.: Got the last bit of a keg; NOTE: Lost all my notes for this one, going with what I remember and wrote on Untappd

Heard good things about this place, but nothing really intrigued me on the tap list when I got there. Pizza was really good. Originally looked at the draft list, but the bartender told me that the drafts were all kicked. Then went with an Evil Twin Saison, which apparently was out as well. The lady told me that there might be a little bit left of this beer (probably because I ordered a Saison the first time) and she was right. I might have received one of the last two or three cups. NOTE: Read #6 Saison on the board, but this appears to have been a #6 Rye Beer according to Beer Advocate.

Poured an amber, clear color with 1-to-2 fingers of off-white head when I got it. Good amount of lacing on the sides of the glass. Good amount of retention on the way down. (Sight - 4.00)

Smelled red apple, plum, dark fruits, light burnt toffee and earthy grass. (Smell - 4.00)

Taste was just as good, mainly getting red apple, plum, purple grape and light toffee. Some wintry notes - faint molasses and some rye spiciness - coming in as well. (Taste - 4.00)

Medium body. Oily texture. Soft carbonation. Long finish. (Feel - 4.00)

Really wish I would not have deleted my notes, as I enjoyed this one. Would have it again for sure. (Overall - 4.00)

This beer hits the glass is a murky, brown color with just a touch of red around the edges. A huge, frothy, and long-lasting head of a light brown hue forms and hangs around for a long while. The head leaves a good amount of lacing as the beer is drank. When I take a sniff of this beer, the first scent that greets the nostrils is a bit of caramel malt sweetness. That caramel malt is quickly joined by some funky brett and yeasty scents. There is just a touch of tartness, but it is mostly a slightly metallic tartness. The lingering scent is funk with just a touch of chocolate.

This beer hits the tongue is a wash of caramel and brown malts that are semi-sweet, but get balanced quickly by a light, grainy funk that kicks in next. The taste is not quite as funky as the scent was with the yeast profile, but still has a touch of must and rye malt flavor. The end of the drink is a lightly spicy rye flavor that lingers only a little bit on the tongue and combines nicely with the dominant caramel malt flavors. The beer drinks very easily and feels a lot like an English brown ale. The carbonation is relatively low and the body is moderately thick. The thickness reminds me a lot of skim milk in that it isn't quite thick, but still isn't thin.

Overall, this is a quality take on a style that few breweries try to do. The rye malt gives some spice and the caramel malts add a darkness to the flavor that is nice. This is just a really quality brew overall.

750ml bottle. Poured out a hazy burgundy color with a small, off-white head of foam. It smelled spicy with hints of caramel and chocolate. Nice spicy rye notes with toasted caramel and a touch of chocolate to go with a piney hop bite.

Appearance: A very nice rocky head, off-white in color. Great retention and lacing. Dark red and brown in color. Lacing is nice and rocky.

Nose: Sweet malt with a little raisin. Slightly yeasty. A tiny bit of banana and rum.

Taste: Interesting flash of yeasty fruit up front followed by crisp sweet red apples. The beer then becomes slightly bitter and a tiny bit dry. Carbonation is very well put together...

Notes: The last beer I am drinking before leaving Mount Wilson Observatory.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a dark brown color and a thick consistency. There was a large, tan-colored, foamy, long-lasting head. Very good lacing.

S: A somewhat muted aroma of dark fruit, malt, and chocolate.

T: Tasted of dark fruit (raisins, plums), some malt, light chocolate notes, and a slight funkiness (a bit surprising). At times this flavor seemed okay, but then it seemed thin and watery. It feels unfinished.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is a very uneven beer. It has some good characteristics, but ultimately falls short.

Taste: raisin, caramel, soft graininess, moderately spicy, unripe but not tart plum. Medium plus bodied, finished drying and mildly sweet with lingering earthiness. Nice!

Poured from 750mL bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: deep, rich amber-brown with a slight touch of haze and a strong effervescence. Head pours three thick fingers of creamy tan foam. I think it's quite attractive.

Smell: bready malt aroma with a definite rye character: a little spicy and fruity. There is a little cherry here as well as some caramel and toffee. It reminds me a bit of a subtle quadrupel. I like it.

Taste: much like the aroma, with plenty of raisin, cherry and tobacco character. Rye spiciness is definitely there but it doesn't overwhelm anything. This is quite a fine beer.

Mouthfeel: rich body with a huge carbonation yielding a decent creaminess, if a bit rocky. Quite good.

Overall: this beer really appeals to me. I'm very glad I've discovered it.

750ml capped bottle into Tired Hands stemware. Shared with schen9303.

Pours a frothy 2 finger cream colored head with good retention. Beer is a dark, almost opaque mahogany. Lacing is thick and layered with great stick. A really nice looking beer.

Nose is peppercorn, caramel, cream, brown sugar, and a creamy, hop bitterness. Moderately aromatic but a bit awkward.

Opens caramel, toffee and brown sugar. Creamy hop bitterness mixed with some coriander, clove and spice in the middle. End is more caramel sweetness balanced by a smooth nuttiness and anise. Aftertaste of spice and nutty notes. Decent.

Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth on the palate but accented going down. Messy finish with a lingering aftertaste. Just a touch heavy but still pretty drinkable.

Solid if a bit strange for the style. A nice deviation but I wouldn't revisit this one.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

Not a gusher, but an oversized real light cocoa and even tanned fistfull giant head. Even on slow pour this thing just balloons to stupid sized. Body color is a very dark mahogany red, and you can see a fairly strong rising column of middle carbonation at the bottom. Giant whipped up retention, but just wont go away making for difficult drinking.

Interesting nose. Milk chocolate, dry cocoa powder. Soft floral senses and somewhat perfume like aromatics. Quite nice, hints at porter chocolate roast character but something else is in the mix.

Real interesting palate. Large expected carbonation on the tongue, mineral, and large prickly sensing bubbles that give well to an earthy and peppery finish. Quite dry, but with some dark hinting spices as well. Chocolate milk sensations a bit in the mid palate coupling with a bit of fancy heat in sharp farmhouse goodness.

A real neat drink, but unfortunately seems like it's a little haphazard in its delivery overall.

a very rye heavy saison that also happens to be brutally hopped and dark red in color with an inch or so of lasting white head with fine ring lacing as it drinks down. the nose here is spicy from the rye, rich from the darker roast on it, and drying weirdly. i get some caramel malt sweetness in there too though, and finally a huge blast of hops from the pine family with plenty of bitterness. the flavor is a lot like the nose, the rye is dominant and aggressive, almost clumsily so, overcoming whatever interesting saison yeast might be in this beer, its a straight up rye bomb. lots of hops too, which is strange in a saison like this. i don't taste red malt but i can feel its sweetness trying to fight the bitter of the hops, but it can't contend. the is a robustly flavored brew that could perhaps be toned down a bit, especially for it to show any signs of being a saison. apparently upright does open fermentation, which is cool of course, but ti does very little for this overzealous brew. fuller bodied, spicy, and bitter, a strange swallow and mouthfeel. bubbly enough. i respect it, but i won't buy it again.

Purchased at State Line Liquors in Elkton, MD for about $13. Bottle says its a dark saison.
Poured from bottle into D'Achouffe tulip. Pour is deep brown with massive creamy tan head. This looks so amazing. Aromas of fig and dried fruit with a nice rye spice and hop. Flavors of dried fruit and chocolate, figgy, and raison like. Nice hop spice. Really dry yet creamy...super drinkable and well balanced, a near perfect mouthfeel for a saison. Awesome brew.

Dark brown/burgundy ale with a thick & sudsy white head. Heavy cherry aroma along with some hints of smoke and spice. Thick mouth feel, crisp and dry finish after a sweet explosion of flavor--cherries, cinnamon, vanilla, smoke, spice. Ridiculously easy-drinking for such a complex beer. Finishes acidic, not sour but noticeably tart. I order this every time I can, at the brewery or elsewhere around town, and it never gets old. Amazing with almost any food, especially fatty meats / burgers. One of those beers that is just as good on a snowy day as it is on 80f and sunny days. Spectacular and I hope Upright brews another batch with cherries added soon...

Appearance: Pours a coffee brown color with a very impressive ecru head that leaves a few streaks along the side of the glass

Smell: A deep whiff reveals some caramel and chocolate hiding underneath a tart fruit (rotting apples and cherries) and woodsy aroma; toasted rye elements add a spicy character, too; it all comes together in what I can only describe as tamarind

Taste: The tart, woodsy and herbal flavors co-mingle with spicy rye creating an interest melange; underneath, there is chocolate and caramel, too; overall, the net effect I get is of a slightly sour tamarind flavor

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate to high carbonation

Overall: A very interesting beer, but tamarind is not something I would want as the dominant flavor in my beer; glad I tried it but doubt I would re-visit

Pours jet black with nice tan head. More complex than I remember from previous tastes. Chocolate, toasted malt, and slight tartness are in the forefront, but are followed by a long, dry aftertaste that is reminiscent of match heads and sulfur- oddly enough, this is not unpleasant. Complex, many flavor notes, but the mineral aftertaste is perhaps the most distinctive. Hop bitterness is noticeable underneath rich flavors of dark fruits, coffee and caramel. So much going on here.

750ml bottle, a surprising find during a quick pop-in to see an oldish chum at a downtown wine store.

This beer pours a rather cloudy, dark red brick amber hue, with three fat-ass fingers of puffy, rocky, and densely foamy ecru head, which leaves some incredibly attractive honeycombed lace around the glass as it very slowly abates.

It smells of grainy, biscuity caramel malt, with a certain spicy, dank rye interloper, a bit of dark tropical fruit, a hint of earthy yeast, and herbal, leafy hops. The taste is grainy, bready rye and caramel malt, in equal doses, in a manner that diffuses the extremes of both, with some additional bittersweet chocolate, a bit of dark demarara sugar, a hint of gritty yeast, and more leafy, subdued grassy hops.

The carbonation is pretty understated, with barely an initial peep, the body an adequate medium weight, and generally quite smooth. It finishes off-dry, the graininess of the malt persisting somewhat, the yeast doing a bit of hipster lingering and posturing, and some dank, earthy hops rounding things out.

A pleasant enough rye-tinted saison, the heady caramel maltiness sort of cutting through the middle, with the proclaimed titular yeast and spicy grain falling by the wayside, once they've spent their load. More saison chicanery from this Portland upstart, which, while interesting, is starting to mess with my impression of the style - I'm ready for something else now, methinks.

Pours with a big, fluffy head of white foam on top of a hazy, golden body. The head settles slowly and leaves excellent lace. A spicy, peppery aroma with a touch of clove and coriander. Some grainy malt and spicy yeast with pepper and clove. Medium body, moderate carbonation, and a Fairly sweet finish. Not my favorite example of the style. The yeast character is unpleasant and there really isn't anything else going on. Overly sweet.

Upright is always appreciated - thanks, Kevin. Six pours a deep shade of woody brown, almost appearing black once it finally piles up in the glass. It's fairly volatile and the head grows pretty quickly and rests for a while at about a quarter-inch. It's light tan in color and leaves behind some generous strips and streaks of lacing and foam all along the top of the glass.

Six smells like straight up rye, at least at first. Very, very dry and piled up with boat loads of spicy rye. It's also quite woody in character, and only at the very end of the sniff can I detect the hops, which are kind of leafy and ashy all at once. As time goes on, I swear I can smell a faint hint of cherry sweetness somewhere in there, too, but the rye does its best to obliterate all else.

I was almost fearful to sip this one at first - I thought the rye might just burn a hole in my throat. While the taste is still incredibly rye-heavy, it's not to an abrasive or unpleasant degree. Very dry rye spice is backed with musty and woody notes of funk, almost like a forest floor. A delicate touch of hops provides a nice little snap mid-palate, but they don't add much flavor-wise.

It's definitely a malt and rye heavy beer, and warmth opens up a few more flavors of cocoa powder, light caramel, and some heavily toasted bread. I can sense a light, fruit sweetness, almost tartness in the background, but I'm having an incredibly hard time putting my finger on exactly what fruit it is. The bottle says cherry and tropical fruit - neither of which I necessarily agree with - but there's certainly some kind of tame fruit in there.

Needless to say, rye is the king here and pretty much takes a barbed wire covered baseball bat to any other flavor that even starts to trespass in its territory. The finish is quite spicy and tastes of toasty, rye bread. I wasn't surprised to find out that this beer is insanely dry, and left my palate feeling like it had been polished with some 60-grit. Lots of biting, snappy carbonation, too.

Pretty good beer, but I must confess and be completely honest - I'm not the biggest fan of rye beer that's ever lived, so my expectations for this beer weren't too high to begin with. Still surprisingly easy to drink when you consider the relative amount of rye that makes up the flavor profile. I'll be excited to soon try the rest of this Upright series (that is, Four, Five, and Seven).

750 ml bottle. Served in a Unibroue tulip, the beer pours a burnt orange/brown color with a couple inch light tan head that actually kept growing slowly for a few minutes after the initial pour. It took a while for the head to settle down before I could start drinking it. There's also a lot of lacing. Aroma is yeasty and fruity, it smells like pears, rye/dark bread, herbs, cloves, and apples. The brew tastes like dark bread/rye, pears, apples, cloves, caramel malt, and some dark fruit. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit slick and is well carbonated. The carbonation is soft which helps make it easy to drink. I liked this, and I wouldn't mind trying it again in the future. $11.99 a bottle.
