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.

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%.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - SEP 11, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2006 Draft at bells 20th anniversary party. Pours a speckled brown color with a nice off white head. Nose is yeasty and bready, some light caramel and malt. Its actually quite intriguing. Taste comes through with yeast, dough and some light malt, maybe raisins and plums mixed about as well. Finishes slightly bitter and with your mouth questioning itself. The nose and taste both contain some cinnamon stick like qualities.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 11, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2006 Pours a nearly opaque murky dark mahogany with a thin-lacing, frothy, dark tan head. Aroma of sweet wheat and dark caramel malt with some bready Belgian yeast and light fruitiness. Starts with a pleasant malty sweetness and good viscous, bready texture toward a drier, toasty, dark chocolate finish. Pretty true to style and enjoyable.

On tap at the 2005 Great Taste of the Midwest: Barely transparent, dark, cloudy brown pour with a nice, lightly-lacing, light brown head. Has a rich, complex malty and bready Belgian yeasty aroma. Body starts full and sweet with some mild dark fruit complexity and good Belgian yeasty character. Nicely-balanced and complex, this beer should age very well. Now, if they only bottled some…

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 14, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2006 Tap @ GTMW, and follow up goblet in December 2005 at the Eccentric Cafe. Deep, hazy chestnut brown with nice lacing as we go. Anise, cloves and pepper are the backdrop for a crescendo coming from chocolate and bananas. Flavor transitions as expected, with chocolate, banana, pepper and cloves. Creamy and well balanced. Hints of anise on the underbelly. On tap at the brewery, coffee nodes played a primary role with chocolate and bananas coming in as secondary flavors. Pretty tasty stuff.

1FastSTi (3338) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 14, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2006 Sampled at GTMW. The appearance is a dark brown body with a tan head. The aroma is barley and roasted malts. A little weak. The flavor is coffee and barley wine type flavors. Light chocolate.

Had this in bottle form. No change on me liking it enough to buy more of it.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JUL 15, 2005
Sampled on draught @ Bell’s Eccentric Cafe in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Very dark brown color with a small and quickly diminishing white head. Quite dark, considering they call it a Belgian Dubbel. Really gentle aroma, with a light hint of molasses, chocolate and red fruit, but it is very subtle. Upon tasting, this is more like a Belgian stout. Really roasty, with molasses, chocolate and coffee notes and heavily yeasty, leathery tones. Light cassis and port wine flavors as well, though very light, considering they consider this beer a Dubbel. But, what makes this beer so special is its heavenly body. It’s so creamy and thick and really brings out the flavors.

Silphium (3173) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 2, 2005
On tap at the Eccentric Cafe. Deep brown (pretty much opaque) body with a thin, dissipating off-white head. Orangey-red highlights at the edges. Toasty aroma with residual sugars and dark fruit, light because the beer was served too cold. Flavor was initially quite dry and toasty with plenty of chocolate, giving the beer an English Strong Ale feel, but as the beer warmed the vinous red grape finish opened up along with hints of cola, licorice, and bready yeast. Cherry flavors also developed at warmer temperatures. Alcohol was evident in the finish. Another excellent beer in the tap room.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2006 draft at eccentric day 2004. looks a lot like a doppelbock--no head, deep brown. soy saucy, salty, spicy. reminds me a little of samichlaus somehow. medium tingly body.
bottled now, and it’s much the same. dark brown/black with a tan head and a roasted smoky aroma and flavor. a smoked dubbel (this fits nowhere, i suppose dubbel is the closest there is) - no alcohol notes but plenty of unique earthen flavors despite a minimal hops presence.
