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.

Evolutionary (448) - Ohio, USA - MAY 18, 2016
Bottle from andersons. Nose is malty and rich. Smooth body for an ale and more like a porter. Well balanced. Starts with smoky cocoa and malt fullness and morphs to bit of nuts and dark sugars and cherry. Pretty good.

ARH (1100) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 18, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2016 12oz bottle, poured into a Belgian tulip. The aroma is initially a roasty and chocolate blend with undertones of nuts. coffee comes through eventually, then turns to a fruity, fig and dates tone with a woody spice. It pours a rich, deep mahogany with soft, brown foam that has a great amount of retention and leaves a dense lace. The taste is a medium high sweet and medium low bitter blend. It?s smooth, with foamy, soft carbonation. The texture is like that of a light weight syrup with a medium body. Flavors of chocolate, caramel, and cream soda are noted first with a mild woody spice, nuts, and a bit of mocha. It finishes smooth with cacao, then vanilla, root beer, raisin, spices, a light leather, and some coffee notes tha arise late with a sweet, sugary grape jelly. The aftertaste is smokey and sticky with chocolate and a late molasses and sarsaparilla.

commonmac (954) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 26, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2015 On tap at Busters. Definitely one of the best beer bars in the Twin Cities. Consumed in a 12 oz pour with samadouche. Cola brown nearing the black threshold. Minimal tan head. Roasty, nutty aroma with some chocolate undertones. Taste comes forward as more of a stout than a dubbel. The roasted coffee and chocolate plays a big role almost overshadowing the Belgian qualities I crave. Some cherry found in the sip. Alcohol presence felt...almost a bourbon warmth. It’s a very good beer but seemingly mislabeled as an abbey dubbel...should be an abbey dubbel stout.
