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.

nimrod (73) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - OCT 20, 2010
Bottle. Poured dark but thinner than expected with small creamy head. Aroma was roasty, unidentifiable fruit, and spice. Taste of dark chocolate, fruit, some roasted coffee, sweet malt, and the belgian yeast. Thin on the palate, with little hops, and mostly sweet with a little bitterness. Not knowing what this beer was, I was confused by what I thought was a stout. I couldnít pinpoint the flavor until I found out Belgian yeasts were used an it all made sense. Excellent experimentation by Bells.

muzzlehatch (4837) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 11, 2016
12 ounce bottle from House of Bottles in Marengo, IL, served a bit below cellar temp in a Chouffe tulip. Pours a very dark molasses color, nearly opaque, with a massive light crŤme brulee head that takes minutes to dissipate, leaving mostly clean glass as it decays...light yeasty nose with touches of toffee, faint grapiness...sweet body offers candy or brown sugar and a growing roasty character, with again fairly light yeast throughout, turning to somewhat bitter, a touch drier (thought still somewhat sweet) and burnt at the finish...milky texture to the mouthfeel, strong-ish, lively carbonation. As the description says, itís more like a stout than a dubbel I think. Pretty decent overall.

Aurelius (5094) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 27, 2016
Inky, with khaki head. Nice semi-sweet raisiny, leathery, peaty aroma. Dark fruit, raisins, dates, a bit dusty, mildly acidic but buffered, some smoky notes, maybe some cocoa. Creamy mouthfeel. A little creosote at the end. Quaffable and quite good. On tap, Gaines Street Pies.

jrodooo5 (1509) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - AUG 16, 2016
Lovely black pour w/ reddish hues that has a retaining tan head & good lacing. The aroma rich, roasty, & bold. The flavor is a cross of a stout & black ipa. Itís roasty, hoppy, & rather complex. The body is chewy yet still quite drinkable at 7.5%. Tasty & overall a very good beer!

Evolutionary (472) - 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 (1118) - 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.
