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.

On tap at the Eccentric Cafe: Another delicious stout by Bells. Yes, stout. I asked the barman twice if he was sure he had poured me the dubbel. Very dark and stouty but with the spice, yeast, and candi sugar that lends a bit of Belgianness. Rather like a weaker batch 7k.

This was absolutely solid, but I could never drink a second one. Coffee, chocolate, and cherry.

Pours a dark mahogany brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malts and dark fruit. Taste is mostly roasted malts, some light coffee, and slightly bitter dark chocolate. Smooth with a mild tingling sensation. More similar to a light stout than an Abbey. Semi-sweet roasty aftertaste. Good but not great.

This is awesome. It's got coffee and dark chocolate blended perfectly together with dubbel yeast and fruitiness. It's so good.

Had this on tap as part of a flight at first draft. Black with sticky brown head. Very boozy. Cocoa and vanilla notes. Big

Bell’s Hell Hath No Fury enters some strange territory but it does so with a sense of cohesion. There are a few breweries that have tried pairing darkness with Belgian flavors (Ommegang and Stillwater are the more successful ones that come to mind) but it’s rarely been so well as with Hell Hath No Fury. There’s notes of coffee roast, char, earth, cocoa, cherry, candy, fruit cake, and Belgian spices. Full-bodied but not heavy feel. Not your typical Abbey Dubbel but a rather tasty one.

Draft. A- Roasty, cocoa, subtle dark fruit. A- Black color, black liquid, tan head. T- Roasty, cocoa. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, roasty finish. O- Thought this was a stout when I ordered it. Even tasted like it for the most part. Honestly, pretty unmemorable.

muzzlehatch (4970) - 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 crème 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, it’s more like a stout than a dubbel I think. Pretty decent overall.

Aurelius (5499) - 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 (1706) - 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. It’s roasty, hoppy, & rather complex. The body is chewy yet still quite drinkable at 7.5%. Tasty & overall a very good beer!
