3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. Goblet at the Eccentric. Rating #999! Ah, my last taste of mortality before I ascend to Beer Godhood! Damn, this one is black! More like an impy porter, mocking me with its tan head. Yet it has just a mild dubbel smell with no alcohol trace, just a fresh bit of yeast. I taste dark malts, with no roasties or tannins. Way off style, but I’m handing it a high mark there, anyway, ’casue it just looks to clever. I catch a tounch of unmodified wheat, then here comes that more faimilar Belgian taste. A big, surprisingly complex beer with an impressive finish. They were all out of bottles at Bell’s store, I could only get this on tap before it disappeared.
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 (1985) - 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. muzzlehatch (4959) - 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 (5335) - 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.

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 (1959) - - JUL 6, 2016
Bottle. Pours a dark brown. Aroma and taste are malts, some spices, and some roast. Evolutionary (503) - 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. hershiser2 (3267) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2016
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. dlovell2 (2144) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 11, 2016
Pours dark brown with a mocha colored head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, dark fruit, and a light clove yeastiness. Flavor is roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, dark dried fruit. Finishes with dried plums and Belgian yeast. Really nice!
