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.

Mmmmm, yummy! This was very dark, kind of surprised me for some reason. The colour was mostly brown, and you couldnít see through it even when up to a light source. The head was pretty large even after a controlled pour and had a nice off white head. the aroma contained spices of clove and others of unknown name. This was light but creamy feeling, filled more with flavour than body, but could never be considered thin or watery. the flavour was predominatly tasty up front malts with some spice lending a nice flavour balanced outg by a bit of a hop note, but that seems to merely balance this beer rather than add itís own flavour profile. there was a bit of a lingering feeling that made me feel more like I should drink more, opposed to making me feel like I can nurse it. Iím glad I got to try this finally, and it only increases my respect for Larry Bell.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2006 Pours a very dark opaque brown with a small tan head. At first wiff the aroma of belgium kicks you upside the head, but then some other more classic bell aromas kick in. I canít even comprehend the taste. Its like an abby double, ipa, stout mix. Not my style, but well done.

Cute 12 ounce bottle w/Lucifer & his wife going at it in a Sergio Argones homage. Beautiful dark brown pour topped with a huge cream head. I inhaled whiffís of heavy spice, smoke & clove. Georgeous lacing appreciated all over my dimpled mug. I was taken aback by my first taste as the flavors were Hefe-esque! I love my Hefes. Second sip was less clove & hefe-like. Big bold malt, smoke, sweet spice and even some citrus & hoppy earthiness began to creep through. Aftertaste was a lingering hops, malt and a hint of spice. Bells is becoming my favorite brewer really fast! Two big thumbs up for one helluva good ale!

Bottle from Chris (styles) Thanks! Really amazing that I get a bells beer and then the same day I have already drank it.. Pours out a dark brown almost black color with a tan head. I knew it was an "abbey dubbel" but after the pour it looks like expedition stout. Smell is malty and smoked, earthy and rich. Taste is smooth and rich without an alcohol presence at all. Really something that might improve with a few months in the cellar. Not too shabby, and as always, a pleasure to drink a new bells beer.

Bellís Hell Hath No Fury 12 oz bottle Packaged 10/06, descended into 11/06 Medium pour in a snifter. Poured black, with brown highlights, with an average frothy mostly diminishing light brown head with a tiny ring of lacing. Smelt of smoked game, earthy, burnt malt. Taste was upfront moderate sweet and bitter coffee roast and earthy yeast, followed by a moderate bitter soy sauce and dark dark chocolate sweetness on a long smokey finish. Mouthfeel was medium to full bodied, syrupy and velvety, softly carbonated, with light astringency. Overall, the flavors are a bit odd and interesting, a combination of dark malt roast bitterness and yeasty sweetness. Despite the strongly astringent finish,it mostly works.

With a name like this, I didnít expect a dark ale but in the glass, it is so dary that you canít see through it. There is definitely a smoky flavor to it but I really didnít care for the after taste.

Bottle: Dark brown pour with a dark tan. Aroma, big roasty malts, some belgian yeast, some fruits. Flavor, Dark fruits, yeast, some spice, and some floral hop notes. A lot thicker than I expected, probably a little on the sweet side, but I always like a new beer from Bells.

Excessive roasted malt gives this a bland taste almost saved by sweet fruits. No hops. Too swee. Pretty lame unless you like bland malt-centric cloying brew.

BŁckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 31, 2006
Bottle: Pours a muddy brown color, nice tan head and light lacing. The nose is sweet with a bit of plum and paper, some belgian yeast and lots of light roast, some astringency and light hops. The flavor is tart with some belgian notes and toast, some bitterness and a full body. Decent amount of alcohol and a creamy sharp tail. Decent stoutish belgian ale. Thanks Ken!
