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.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - MAY 16, 2006
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.

ElBorracho (472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2006
On tap at the brewpub. This one pours like a thin stout... almost jet black with a thin beige head. Smoke surrounded by dried dark fruit and bananas all wraped up in a mildly sweet finish. No trace of the high alcohol content at all. A fine brew.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 23, 2006
Strong roasted caramel malt and yeastiness in the aroma. Fairly prominent caramel/toffee malt with dried fruits... figs/dates/raisins ...and a yeasty quality in the background. Some undertones of Belgian spicing as well. Very well hidden ABV. Pleasantly drinkable but not a home run.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2007 tap - This one made me think Belgian Strong Ale more than anything, but a Dubbel? Alright. It’s dark brown with a thin head. Flavor is of dark fruits and malt with a dry finish. The palate is full bodied with slight yeasty bitterness in the finish. And hey, it has a great name.

Hollywoodt (239) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 18, 2006
On tap @ the Eccentric Cafe. Poured to a dark brown/black color. The aroma was spices and fruits. Not really sure what the flavor was, exactly, other than very good. I’d definitely have it again.

badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 12, 2005
almost black in appearance with minimal head...aroma of caramely sugars and spices, dark fruits...very belgian like....flavor is a wonderful combination of roasted caramels, toffee, spices, with a slight woody aftertaste....a tad harsh on the palate, but nothing to complain about....i want seconds!

BBB63 (6154) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 9, 2005
On tap at brewery: Deep murky brown hue with a small frothy head and good lace. The aroma has notes of earthy and fruity yeast esters, carmelized and smoky malting, and some peppery undertones, a bit weaker than I would want. The taste starts quite fruity (plum, starfruitr, and pear) with a nice dark and sweet malt base. A light smoke and subdued lactic twang greets you towards the finish. The feel is smooth and lightly oily, quite drinkable for 9% ABV. Refreshing and dry finish with a light aftertaste. A soild and enjoyable brew even if a bit muddled and not to style.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - OCT 4, 2005
Tap @ Great taste of the Midwest- Dark murky brown color. Small light brown head. Flavor is thin, toffee, caramel, other strange things. Not really my thing personally.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - SEP 19, 2005
On Tap at the Eccentric Cafe. Dark opaque brown colour with a rapidly dissapating beige head. Anise, tobacco and belgian yeast dominate the nose. Body is full , fruity and yeasty with toasty chocolate maltyness. Dangerously yummy stuff for 9%.
