4.28/5  rDev +13.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours with just a touch of dark tan head and barely any fizz, quite unlike the explosive pour of many true Belgians. Body is opaque with hints of burnt umber around the edges where the light does (barely) get through. Head is already down to a rim by the time I take the first whiff.

The aroma is very mild; perhaps I poured too cold as it doesn't seem to be throwing anything up into the air. Hints of raisin and port and chocolate-covered-cherry goodness. Each sip starts with a mild buzz on the tongue, giving over quickly to a roasty, sweet, and... savory flavor. Like chocolate covered beef jerky, but without the salt. Prominent star anise flavor - yes! That's what it is; now that I taste it, I would almost call this a licorice porter.

"Hell hath no fury ale" is barely bitter, very malt balanced, only subtley alcoholic, and lacks that certain astringent bite characteristic of many Trappiste ales like Rochefort. In short, I love it. I'm not at all a purist when it comes to Belgian-style ales, and I'm definitely a fan of this sweet, raisiny, licoricey interpretation. I'll probably put away my other bottle to age for a few months or years, but I will be sorely tempted by it in the meantime.
