2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours dark and headless with amber shallows. The aroma harbors raspberry marshmallows, graham crackers and vanilla. The flavor is rather dry with vanilla highlights and a subtle smokiness. I keep searching deeper for substance, but continue to come up empty. A kind of hollow empty void pervades this beer as though it were longing for the earthy yeast of it’s breathern. Overall, seems more like a failed attempt at something bigger rather than what it, at last, is.
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. Hopper8 (225) - Holland, Michigan, USA - SEP 21, 2017
This is awesome. It's got coffee and dark chocolate blended perfectly together with dubbel yeast and fruitiness. It's so good. kaser (6366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2017
Had this on tap as part of a flight at first draft. Black with sticky brown head. Very boozy. Cocoa and vanilla notes. Big MetalNHopHead (2123) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - NOV 11, 2016
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.

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.

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 (5479) - 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 (1703) - 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! Mark_Eck (1998) - - JUL 6, 2016
Bottle. Pours a dark brown. Aroma and taste are malts, some spices, and some roast. Evolutionary (513) - 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.
