COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bell’s Hell Hath No Fury 12 oz bottle Packaged 10/06, descended into 11/06 Medium pour in a snifter. Poured black, with brown highlights, with an average frothy mostly diminishing light brown head with a tiny ring of lacing. Smelt of smoked game, earthy, burnt malt. Taste was upfront moderate sweet and bitter coffee roast and earthy yeast, followed by a moderate bitter soy sauce and dark dark chocolate sweetness on a long smokey finish. Mouthfeel was medium to full bodied, syrupy and velvety, softly carbonated, with light astringency. Overall, the flavors are a bit odd and interesting, a combination of dark malt roast bitterness and yeasty sweetness. Despite the strongly astringent finish,it mostly works.

With a name like this, I didn’t expect a dark ale but in the glass, it is so dary that you can’t see through it. There is definitely a smoky flavor to it but I really didn’t care for the after taste.

Bottle: Dark brown pour with a dark tan. Aroma, big roasty malts, some belgian yeast, some fruits. Flavor, Dark fruits, yeast, some spice, and some floral hop notes. A lot thicker than I expected, probably a little on the sweet side, but I always like a new beer from Bells.

Excessive roasted malt gives this a bland taste almost saved by sweet fruits. No hops. Too swee. Pretty lame unless you like bland malt-centric cloying brew.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 31, 2006
Bottle: Pours a muddy brown color, nice tan head and light lacing. The nose is sweet with a bit of plum and paper, some belgian yeast and lots of light roast, some astringency and light hops. The flavor is tart with some belgian notes and toast, some bitterness and a full body. Decent amount of alcohol and a creamy sharp tail. Decent stoutish belgian ale. Thanks Ken!

pinkzambia (1530) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 31, 2006
Bottle:Thick dark brown color with a brown head. Aromas of yeast, raisins, leather . . . I like the taste way better than the aroma. Light notes of coffee along with the yeast, board flavors and a nice lingering aftertaste. Something is really good here but I am not sure what it is. Thanks Indiana_Red for sharing your treats from OhioDad!

UPDATED: APR 21, 2007 Re-Rate- Poured dark with a light brown head, faint chocolate, dark malt and stout fragrances, roasted aroma, the smoke fragrance was there but appeared to have weakened some, the malt and roasted fragrances have improved, there was light alcohol in the background, the alcohol did not grow as the beer warmed, this was thick on the palate, I enjoyed this more this time then last Fall. Rating-7/4/7/4/13 ----- a tan head when poured, thick black ale, when held up to a light, no light gets through, a hint of red in the blackness at the edges of the glass, lots of tan lacing on the glass, aroma of semi-sweet chocolate, roasted chocolate, licorice, smoke, dark malt, faint sweet cream, these aromas were weak, gave me the impression of a weak stout, taste of coffee, burnt sugar, some smoke, carbonation, different then any dubbel I have tried, the sweetness comes on stronger as it warms up, like a stout recipe that used half the ingredients, the mouth feel is medium, and the finish is a sticky dry, I may age some of the bottles to see if it improves, something may be missing or this is not to my liking, I wouldn’t buy this again except maybe next years batch to see if it is different, I was hoping for something more…oh well. Rating-6/5/6/4/11

Deep dark brown with a light brown head. Fruity fragrance with a hint of smokiness. Taste is complex, some raisin, plum, sweet molasses, roasted malt, coffee with some bitterness. A definite bite of alcohol, alcohol presence seems stronger than 7.7%. Overall a fine beer, a little too much dark fruit raisin plum-like flavor, taste is reminiscent of my Mother-in-laws Christmas mincemeat pie.
