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.

Poured from the Mellow Mushroom in Greensboro after the Summerfest Brews Festival. Served from tap into a Chimay goblet. Pours a deep dark brown with a one finger tan head. Maintained excellent lacing throughout. The aroma was comprised of bananas, alcohol, malt, and vanilla. The flavor was of fruit, malt, caramel, alcohol, and vanilla. It had a medium feel on the palate with low carbonation. Overall this was a nice brew. Went down quite smooth and was quite enjoyable even after a day FULL of drinking at the festival. Had a very nice flavor, but just a decent aroma for its style. Worth trying for sure.

Bellís 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 itís rarely been so well as with Hell Hath No Fury. Thereís 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 (4876) - 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 (5129) - 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 (1541) - 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 (475) - 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.
