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.

Tasted at Oregon Brewer’s Festival. Very dark brown with light brown head. Lots of yeast going on here. Good mix of roasted malts. Couldn’t pick up much aroma. Thick as hell. Very nice.

From growler, from the Party Town in Florence, KY. Exciting to purchase this rarity in Kentucky. Deep dark brown with a tan head that eventually becomes a lace around the glass. Aromas are alcohol, nuts, dark chocolates, spice, dark fruits. The flavor is much the same. The alcohol is hard to find in the flavor, but in the aroma its a little easier to find. The mouthfeel is smooth as silky chocolate, and even softer in weight, like whipped cream. Its like Hersheys Extra Dark, and beer in a glass. Another winner from Bells, as usual.

On tap at the Maproom. Poured a deep burgundy with a rather short-lasting beige head. Nose was quite engaging... with spicy malts, dark chocolate, caramel, dark fruity malts, and faint smoke. Flavor was just beautiful! Rich, roasted dark chocolate and fruits with caramel to hold it together. Spiciness was high throughout (picked up black pepper and burnt nutmeg)... toasted grapevine and alcohol rise with warmth. Rich and creamy on the palate, but it fizzled out a bit at the end. Lasting spicy impression. Excellent brew!

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2006 One of the first glasses off of a keg at The Oak Cafe courtesy of MikeMac. This is my first abbey dubbel. Poured black with a very thick brown head that I had to wait for it to go down. Good body. Had an aroma of raisins and some dark malts. Taste had a little alcohol burn but was still very good. Rerate: I had to boost the aroma up .1. I love the fruity and slightly roasty aroma on this. It also goes down so easy tastes so smooth. Great tasting beer that I have already had 4 times, twice on tap and 2 bottles.

On tap: Aroma of raisin, plum, hints of chocolate, and light alcohol. Pours a dark brown with no transparency and an insignificant off-white head. flavor has lots of raisin, chocolate, plum, and other dark fruits. Finishes with a light tartness and alcohol bite. Very tastey, but doesn’t come across as a Dubbel.

64oz growler from PartyTown in Florence Ky - Just got back with my spoils from a trip to Kentucky - This was my prize possession. Pours dark brown with a creamy tan 2 finger head that stays quite well and laces the sides of the glass. Aromas of burnt malts and caramel, and a touch of raisins. Flavor is very malty. Lots of caramel, toasted even burnt malts, some grape, and raisin, smoky. Medium body,creamy texture, and a somewhat dry finish. Quite stout-like for a dubbel but definitely unique. No sign of the alcohol but I think I’ll feel it by the time I get to the bottom of the growler..

Terminus (3229) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUL 17, 2006
tap at brewpub-man, seems like most of my ratings have been right on the numbers. deep brown/chestnut with a brown head. earthy, husky, dark malt nose with lots of coca and grain notes. flavors of chocolate, caramel and light char. An abbey dubbel? i dont think so. Tastes like an amped-up Brown ale. mouthfeal is full but somewhat chalky, but actually adds an element of uniqueness to this brew. Alcohol is very well hidden. i dont know why it was served in a plastic @#$@#@ cup though. I was not a fan of the bells eccentric cafe. They can keep the eccentricness to themselves!

Draft sample at Party Town, KY. Poured dark brown with average frothy brown head that lasted with good lscing. Complex roasted caramel malt aroma. Medium to full body with a creamy texture. Medium roasted fruity sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Interesting solid brew.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2008 12 oz bottle - Almost black color with almost non-existant dark tan head. Aroma is slightly roasty, a bit smoky, roasted caramel, bit of ash, dark cherries. Flavor is slightly smokey, dry roastyness, bit of vanilla, with a balanced finish. Overall a decent brew, but not amazing. As has been said, this is not really a double, more of a belgian-style stout. Tap @ cafe: Very dark brown color with almost no head. Aroma is sticky, hints of smoke, roasted caramel, dark grapes. Flavor is chewy, malty, caramel, grape, dry finish. An alright beer, but not really a dubbel. Too dark in color, no real esters in the aroma. Smokeyness is interesting, but out of place in this brew.
