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.

Bottle. Pours nearly black with a tan halo. Not what I expected from a dubbel. Pours like a stout but smells like a dubbel and tastes like a bit of both. Dark fruit, earth, dark malts, light hints of coffee and clove. Very full-bodied and easy drinking.

Huhzubendah (3074) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Dark brown opaque body with an inch of soapy, beige head. Aromas of raisins, plums, yeast, brown bread. Similar flavor. Aggressive carbonation. Alcohol presence is pretty mild, likely attributed to the 2+ years of cellar time. I’ve yet to have an American dubbel or strong dark ale that stands up to the Belgian greats. This one was pretty good.

Old rating. Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head that hangs around. Aromas of prune, fig, tobacco, arugula and caramel. Flavor is more of the same with a creamy mouthfeel. Malts and fruit really jump out. Medium body with a nice smooth finish.

Bottle, batch 8739. found this one laying around. Oops. from 2008. nose is wet cardboard. with some grape and dark fruit. pour is nearly flat. dark dark brown in color. Taste is a thin, flat, sweet, malt sugary mess. a light bit of chocolate, with some alcohol warming in the finish. overall, not bad for 6 years old, but I won’t finish the glass either.

"near black pour with big head. roasted malty aroma with some fruitiness and chocolate. this beer, somehow called an abbey dubbel at RB, is a nice belgian stout. full and smooth, warming like an imperial, but far from hot. licorice comes out in the flavor as well as the chocolate/fruitiness. this was a very nice surprise courtesy of pfoxyjohn and another reason to LOVE Bells."

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Appearance is that of a stoudt, deep brown black with a deep tan head. Smells of roasted malt candied sugar and some fruity essence. Tastes sweet with candied sugar and alcohol, roasted malts and some light fruit, similar to it’s aroma. Thick and oily feeling with an alcohol wallop. Very rich and robust.

Nsanders (766) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Tap at Happy Gnome. Black with a medium khaki head. Light coffee, belgian yeast, bourbon, vanilla and figs. Burnt sugar sweetness with a bourbon dryness. Heavier with a sticky feel.

BOSSbrewer (2707) - Arkansas, USA - APR 20, 2014
Bottle from Kalamazoo dated 10/03/12 poured on 4/20/14. Pours an opaque brown to black with a thin creamy tan head that lingered and left nice lacing. Aroma is chocolate and slight dark fruit. Slight tobacco. Flavor is roasty with some sweetness and dark fruits. No Belgian yeast at all. Extremely smooth creamy body. Not at all a dubbel but a great beer nonetheless. Fantastic.

Let me just say first and foremost that I fucking hate abbey dubbels and I damn to hell whomever sent me this garbage sauce. Thanks. Pours a deep brown/almost black with no head. I should mention that this was bottled on 10/18/11A, and consumed today, 03/14/14. So, really not that fresh. Aromas of tobacco (red man plug) and some cigarette butts. Not a bad start. I may even like this beer. First sip reveals a pretty dry and refined brew. Whatever this abbey dubbel was,it has matured into a fine beer with all the qualities of a world class Baltic porter. This is totally unexpected. I get ash, cigarette butts, straight cut skoal spit, dark fruit. Nice! Pretty dry and roasty. No bitterness. Some vegetal character,but that’s what’s to be expected. This is pretty fucken good. Tastes pretty much like Boss Porter. Fantastic. Finishes with a dry, lingering ratman197 finish. Awesome. I love this beer.

Bottle. Pours black with a short tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and dark fruit. Creamy smooth flavor of chocolate, dark fruit, coffee, belgian yeast, raisins and light caramel. Medium bodied, minimal carbonation. a solid dubbel
