Very nice, sweet coffee cake aroma. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, the saying goes. Scorned in favor of beer? Is this a tribute to the rage of scorned women? Jet black pour. A pleasantly sweet brew, similar to some porters, with coffee and herb flavors. Another fine brew from Bellís.

Dark brown with a thick brown head. Aroma is roast malt. Flavor of smugly bittersweet caramel with slight notes of toffee. Finishes clean with a sweet but not cloying aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle courtesy of Queenholly. Nice eye appeal in a Trappist glass, I also really like the label on the bottle. Thin lasting tan head in the glass. No is stout like. Rich, deep roasted malts with just a bit of candy sugar. Tastes of figs, fruity Belgian yeast, and chocolate malt. Palate is soft, fuller in body with a creamy texture. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: I poured as aggressively as I could, but it made no difference. Poured like a cola, and the head fizzled away with the sound of one. The color of the beer is just a pitch black, laceless, headless disappointment. Hell Hath No Fury is unfiltered, and some sediment can be seen, which helps a little bit.
Smell: HHNF smells strange, but it smells really good. Such an interesting aroma... I get a clove smell mostly, and some malts. A very sweet smell.
Taste/feel: Has a taste of coriander and clove... it really just tastes a lot like a witbier or dunkelweizen to me, just with a dark malt aftertaste. Keep in mind, Iím not at all familiar with the style "Belgian Strong Dark", so this could very well be typical. Thatís just what I get. It doesnít taste like I thought this would at all -- itís very sweet, with a verrry slight bitterness and sourness on the finish (the latter no doubt due to the Belgian yeast). It doesnít have a super interesting depth of flavor, but itís still tasty. However, a single bottle is more than enough for me during a session. The sweetness and overall feeling of this one is too thick and heavy for me to have too much of. By the bottom of the glass, it almost feels syrupy.
A very interesting beer, and Iím not entirely sure what to make of it. Itís pretty tasty, but not at all like I thought it would.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This thick, reddish black beer smells of raisin, molasses and candy. Dark fruit followed by a hop tingle start this beer. Juniper, coffee and an herb/anise, almost root beer quality gives lots of complexity. Belgian yeastiness is apparent but not too strong. Overall flavor is sweet, but not cloyingly so.

Draft pour dark brown to black. Nose coffee, roast, and maple syrup. Taste of the same with more lingering coffee aftertaste. Several layers of flavor.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap. Mahogany black. Light beige ring around glass. Aroma of wheat, dark fruits, roasted malt, spices, touch of caramel. Medium body, soft, refreshing, roasty, and balanced. Flavor of dark fruits, yeast, earthy hops, spices, roasted malt, and even a hit of banana/clove. Drinks much lighter than it looks. A unique and enjoyable beer.

Bottle. dark, dark brown pour with a small tan head. Mostly clove and raisin in the aroma. Taste adds coffee grounds and some dark chocolate two those main notes. Really silky mouthfeel. More like a strong ale than a dubbel, but very good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty nice dubbel. Pours black with mocha head. Aroma of floral hops and dark chocolate. Taste has bitterness and a little sweetness. Kind of like a hybrid between funnel and doppelbock. Interesting animal, if not necessarily a funnel. Bottle.
