Draft at a Bellís tasting at Harris Grill, Pittsburgh, PA. Poured a lovely BLACK with tan head and ruby highlights. Aroma was a relative disappointment, probably too cold, but still came through with loads of smoke, cherries, blackberries and caramel. Body followed with similar flavors without too much bourbon! I canít say how much I appreciated the subtleties of the bourbon adding good caramel and smoke flavors. Palate was fairly good, they also avoided the astringent viscosity that most in this style find, which I am most appreciative of. Overall another winner from Bellís!

Loss of barrel here, whcih kills thr subtle greatness of this beer. Black pour with decent head and lacing. Light florals and smoke. Light sweet boozy finish. Tap at Churchkey.

I really was disappointed. Itís a good beer to be sure but as a Belgium Double it doesnít make it. Pours almost black but for me it has way too much malt and too chocolaty. For the price, $15.00 a six pack, I was hoping for something better from Bells who are really my favorite brewer

Tasted on 11/26/11 from a 2009 bottle. Pours opaque black with a thin brown head that leaves a thin collar. The nose is bourbon, darkly roasted malt, and some spicy Belgian fruity notes. The flavor is a bit more tart fruit with the same darkly roasted malt and Belgian spice from nose, with a ton of more chocolate covered raisin, and just a touch of bourbon maple. The body is medium with light carbonation and a long chocolate covered raisin finish.

Old note from 8/11/09 Dark black pour light tan head with good lacing. Predominantly bourbon aroma some light sweet bread ho ey notes as well. Full creamy palate. A beer fighting with its barreling more separate than a comp,ex blend of flavors some light spice then bread then overwhelmed with bourbon. Nice but not great.

6/17/2010: Bellís Bourbon Barrel Hell Hath No Fury... Aroma: Subtle licorice, smoke, and char; highly caramelized sugars. Appearance: Deep brown, opaque; thin beige head. Flavor: Bourbon soaked oak; black walnut; crystal malt sugars; barrel char; dry alcohol burn; slightly dry finish. Palate: Medium-bodied; smooth and mellow. Overall: Quite good with some complexity; the base beer is overwhelmed by the bourbon; would like to see a blend of regular Hell Hath No Fury and barrel-aged Hell Hath No Fury.

Growler fill (draught) shared by Danny at The Party Source in Bellevue, KY. Thanks! Rating #71 for this beer.

Rustyham (1836) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Very flowery Belgian Aroma, sweet and like a perfume. Color is a deep brown with red hues. Flavor is sweet, fruity. And a little spicy, definitely lots of potpourri and salt. Very Belgian. Almost some ketchup. 2009 bottle

tap. pours a copper brown with a descent off white bubbly head. aroma is caramel malt, oak, and some vanilla. flavor is the same as aroma. lacing is descent, beer is descent, but a bit over carbonated and is taking away from the flavor.

On tap at MBGSF 2011. Pours a deep brown with a light tan head. Bourbon aroma with brown sugar. Flavor is also brown sugar and bourbon with dark fruit, though I canít quite describe it right. Quite nice.

Lubiere (12765) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 9, 2011
A deep dark ale with a thin creamy moka head. In aroma, a vinous and hoppy malt over vanilla beans. In mout, a woody vanilla chocolate malt with warming alcohol, light lactic notes, not bad but a bit off. On tap at Brewvvival, Feb. 26 2011.
