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.

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 10, 2006
Very dark brown/nearly black, much like a stout, and only a very smallish, almost nonexistant head on it. Strongly spicy nose, very full aroma: with lots of smokiness in both the aroma and the flavor. It is probably the smokiest dubbel I’ve ever had. Quite sweet and malty too, but not syrupy. I expected the alcohol to be greater, but this is a very smooth beer, even slightly "creamy" mouthfeel. Decent beer.

Thanks to moejuck for this - very dark burgundy color, nearly opaque, with thick tan lace around the glass - the aroma is lightly smokey, with some plum, light spice and floral notes, and dark chocolate - moderate roasted malts in the flavor, with hints of chocolate, coffee, caramel, dark fruit flavors - fairly thick mouthfeel for this style - finishes slightly bitter, to cut the sweetness, with lingering smoke - quite a hefty, tasty interpretation of the style.

This is very good. The beer is black, and there is a thick khaki colored foam on top. One of the thickest and darkest dubbels I have had. Aroma is malt, light smoke, and some fruit. Flavor has charcoal, well done roast beef, sweet malt, some fruit and very light hops. Alcohol is very well hidden.

pours black and muddy with a small tan head which quickly faded. Aroma is complex malt aroma like bread molasses and mild coffee, hop aroma of citrus and yeasy aroma of bubblegum. Flavor is also complex it starts balanced and finishes more on the bitter. with a distinct coffee/ toasted malts flavor. Medium to full bodied, creamy and softly carbonated. Nice job, I will be drinking this again soon.

muenster (345) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 8, 2006
Bottle (thanks Ryan!) Pours surprisingly dark, with a bubbly tan/brown head. Aroma is dark fruit, (also some ripe lighter fruit), yeast, spiciness (especially clove) and sweet malts. Flavor has a subdued roatiness to it, with smooth sweet malts, and a complex yeast/fruit arrangement that takes it far beyond usual dubbel territory. Very unique, and quite enjoyable.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 7, 2006
Bottle from Rozi’s in Cleveland. Strange mixed aroma of yeast, clove, raisen, fruit, and smoke. Flavor is like a cross between a stout and a dubbel...weird. Dark roast, phenols, yeast, wheat malt. Dry bitter finish with a touch of alcohol. This is a bizarre marriage of flavors. Not sure I care for this one. A stouty dubbel. Maybe this will get better with some time in the cellar.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 7, 2006
Interesting drink, kind of like a mix between a dubbel and a dry stout, utilizing the better qualities of both. It pours a deep dark brown body with a chocolate head. The aroma is dark caramel with dark cherries and a touch of dark roasted malts. A hit of coffee and a dollop of chocolate are added to the flavor along with one or two raisins. The finish is is a roasted dryness. Dubbel or another Bell’s stout in disguise? Either way, it’s good.

tap - LET IT WARM UP!!! This was served too cold and letting it warm up made a GREAT difference in taste and mouthfeel. Aroma was caramel and molasses mixed with a sour cherry note. Poured a very dark brown with a nice tan head. Taste had a definate stout roastiness with dried fruit additions. I loved the palate.. just wanted to let it roll around in my mouth to get its full flavor.

Dogbrick (10707) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2006
Pours dark brown, almost black, with a medium light tan head that dissipates to a compact leftover. Thin rings of lacing. Smoked aroma of coffee and roasted malt. Medium-bodied with a smoky character, and roasted malt, dark fruit and coffee flavors. Some figs as well. The finish is malty and fruity with a lingering roasty aftertaste. Very good overall.

Stine (1744) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 5, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2007 Nearly black with burgundy shades. Aromas of alcohol, chocolate, mollasses, cedar, and rye. Complementary sweet and dry flavors of roasted malt, chocolate, caramel, plum and more dark fruits. Very fleeting ’typical’ belgian flavors if any, and strikingly stout-like on most fronts. Warming and rich.
