Originally conceived along the lines of a Belgian Dubbel, Hell Hath No Fury... Ale morphed during development into something entirely different. Blending a pair of Belgian abbey-style yeasts into a recipe more akin to a roasty stout, Hell Hath No Fury... Ale offers up warm, roasted notes of coffee & dark chocolate together with the fruity & clove-like aromas.

Batch 7673 ~ Packaged on October 11, 2006

11/18/2006: Bellís Hell Hath No Fury pours a very opaque, very dark brown color. It pretty much looks black in the glass. The head is large, foamy, and brown in color. There is a scant amount of lacing. At colder temperatures the aroma is cherry and charred wood. I have noticed that the aroma becomes more earthy and scents of roasted fruit and some alcohol come out at warmer temperatures. The semi-sweet flavor is a wonderful meddly of rich malt, smoke, roasted fruits, some molasses, and a weak chocolate/coffee blend. The flavor profile is really quite deep and complex, so its difficult to explain all of the different flavors in this beer! Some alcohol flavor is present as well, but it complements the other flavors nicely. There is a slight dry bitterness in the long, warming finish. Very nice! As far as mouthfeel and palate, this beer coats the entire mouth and is medium to full bodied. It is quite smooth and very enjoyable! I am impressed with the depth, richness, and complexity of this beer. Hell Hath No Fury might not be as fruity as other Dubbels, but Bellís interpretation of the style is very favorable, in my opinion! Overall, Bells Hell Hath No Fury is quite rich and complex. At warmer temperatures the aroma is more earthy and contains roasted fruits.

12 fl. oz. bottle. Score: 7/4/8/4/16 = 3.9

8/24/2008: This stuff is still holding on quite well! As indicated by the think cola-brown pour, this beer has a medium-full body and low level of carbonation. A fleeting tan head dissipates quickly. The aroma and flavor exhibit a sweet, earthy and licorice quality. There is also chocolate, dark caramelized candi sugar, char, as well as some dark fruits that have been cooked down, dried, and then aged! The flavor is truly unique and difficult to describe. This beer also has a good strength, seem balanced, and is slightly sticky on the lips. I think it is still just as good if not better than it was when it was released in 2006...

11/18/2009: Bellís Hell Hath No Fury...Ale... Aroma: Port; smoky char; roasted malts; licorice; caramelized molasses. Appearance: Very dark brown to near black color; opaque; fading brown crown. Flavor: Smoke and sweet char turning to highly caramelized malts and various dark fruits; chocolate; hints of coffee and licorice. Palate: Medium-full body; still some carbonation. Overall: Still damn good and such an interesting and refreshing interpretation of an Abbey Dubbel!

Pured a hazy very dark brown with a brown head. Aroma of very smokey raisins. As the beer warmed coffee notes grew out as well as some phenols. Not sure what yeast was used so I donít know if it is the yeast giving that aroma. Some sweetness that leads to a fair amount of smoke and phenolics flavors. I am bouncing back and forth trying to decide if it is cloves or band-aids I taste. Maybe a combo. The sweetness drys out at the finish. Medium bodied.

Bottle. Very interesting. Apearance is thick black - a rich brew - maybe only my first or second of this type. Woody, smoky and acidic bitter, much like a bitter coffee, bitter dark chocolate notes as well. Stays bitter right through the finish when you are expecting just a bit of a malty balance, but never comes through. Lively carbonation with a minimal head. Needs further investigation.

Heavily malted and dry with an interesting array of aromas and flavors, this dubbel is an enjoyable sipping beer. Dark, muddy brown pour with short and diminishing tan head. The nose is earthy with hints of wood, smoke, chocolate and roast. Slightly sweet in taste with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Some fruitiness under the roast and burnt wood flavor. Thick body with oily mouthfeel. The alcohol comes forward in the finish.

These days I typically stray away from most Belgian styles...even more so if itís an american brewer. Not to say that they donít make fine examples of the styles...Iím just a bot bored with yeast, orange peel, and coriander sometimes with sweet or fruity maltiness. Although some stand out either with great balance of flavor(like Pannepot or some of the South Hampton brews) or just something different, which would be this brew here. Pours an oily dark brown with a fizzy and somewhat creamy mocha head. A good bit of yeast fills the aroma and is backed with some smoke, roasted malts, some rasin, some spice...pretty earthy. The flavor has a nice roasted malt quality...some smokiness that I think gives the usual fruity sweetness and yeast profile some breathing room to where they arenít as dominate as I wouldíve expected. Nice body, rich and slick with a solid amount of carbonation that doesnít go overboard and works very nicely with the roasted malt character. Tons of malt with hints of fruit ove the tounge with a almost chocolately/roasty/dry finish. A very interesting take on the style, almost like a smoked-dubbel...which would explain the fire and demon on the label.

Dubbels always catch me off guard, pouring way darker than I expected - this one is deep brown nearing black with a fantastic mocha colored head. The yeast dominates the nose, wet earth, supported by caramel malt sweetness. Softly carbed. Lots of dark chocolate, burnt caramel, vanilla tanins and plum in the body. Overall, this is pretty heavy on the tongue for a dubbel IMO, but damn drinkable none-the-less.

grimreeser (797) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 16, 2006
Pours black with a nice sized tan head. Aroma reminded me of beef jerky at first, rather weird and unappealing. There is a smokey malt, dark chocolate aroma that eventually comes out the longer it sits. Some bitterness at the finish. Disappointing.

11/15/06: Bottle.
Black as hell body with a devilishly beautiful, caramel-tan head. Head is ample and quickly fades to a thin ring of carbonation. Some lace. Nose of toasted/burnt malt and caramel. Flavor is smoky, bitter and somewhat burnt. Tones of burnt fruit (plum) and black coffee are also noticed. Finish is bitter.

Great dark brown with small head. Dark fruit such as plum sweet with a decent alchol kick. Creamy with just a hint of coffee Another solid Bells brew.
