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 itís breathern. Overall, seems more like a failed attempt at something bigger rather than what it, at last, is.

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.

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 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.

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.

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!

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.

Bottle from Market Street Wine Shop, Uptown. Pours deep reddish brown with a small tan head. Smells of black cherry, bubblegum, metal. Taste is light metal, light glue, but nice dark cherry and other dark fruits, clove, earth, wood. Nice.
