Hell Hath No Fury pours an extremely dark shade of brown - it's oily, with a hint of garnet, and almost black. In the context of this as a Belgian Strong Dark Ale, this is too dark for the style. The aroma also does not hint at its supposed style - I am picking up roasted malts, brown sugar, molasses, a touch of dark chocolate, and only the slightest hint of fruit esters one might expect. I am going to abandon scoring this beer within the confines of this style for the rest of the review, because it's clear to me that Bells did not intend to adhere to it so much. As for the flavor, I'm getting some dark fruit elements up front along with a sweet taste that's something along the lines of a 'Stella Doro' Italian cookie. The finish consists of bittersweet chocolate with much evidence of alcohol presence. Overall, this one tastes like it's not sure if it wants to be a Belgian Stout or a Strong Dark Ale... it doesn't excel at either point of view and it's not an interesting combination. Not a bad tasting beer by any means, but I would not buy it again.

A little fruit in the aroma with some roast.
Pours black with ¼” tan head that quickly dissipates.
fruity and sweet up front with good body. Starts sweet and then the bitter grows followed by a lingering malty fruity sweetness. There are some nice roasty malt flavors in the background. The dark malt flavors are not burnt malt flavors.
Chewy and creamy.
