Notes / Commercial Description:
Originally conceived along the lines of a Belgian Dubbel, Hell Hath No Fury... Ale morphed during development into something entirely different. Blending a pair of Belgian abbey-style yeasts into a recipe more akin to a roasty stout, Hell Hath No Fury... Ale offers up warm, roasted notes of coffee & dark chocolate together with the fruity & clove-like aromas.

Look- pours cola brown with a thin ring of head

Aroma- coffee, char, brown sugar and a hint of banana

Taste- follows nose with coffee, char, and brown sugar followed by Belgian yeasty banana along with roasty bitterness

Feel- medium bodied and highly carbonated

Overall- unique combo of roasty stout flavors and Belgian yeast flavors

This beer taste likes pennies, I could hardly finish it. Its so gross, I drank it while eating something else and all I could taste was this metallic taste, what are they brewing it in? The after taste tastes like I'm drinking grinded up pennies.

Tastes like Cracker Jack. Toasty caramel but not creamy.

BOD 9/15/17. Pours as dark as a porter, nearly black. Normal head volume, lacing and quite outstanding retention.

Quite outstanding nose similar to that of an Olde Ale coupled with those of a mild stout. Rich dark fruit (prune, raisin) over a base that is slightly sweet. Underneath is a light char and even lighter note of chocolate.

Heavy medium body with a texture that is extremely smooth and hints at being creamy. The carbonation / body balance is adequate and soft, thus adding to the mouthfeel. Effervescence is present and tickles the tongue from time to time but comes across as a bit under carbonated.

The flavor profile is outstanding and rather unique. A base sweetness remains throughout. Prune arrives mid-palate and is the first flavor to separate, then quickly morphs to raisin. Chocolate makes a brief subtle appearance, then the sweetness fades allowing the char and roast to emerge. Clove makes an appearance near the end and lingers after the finish along with a note of bitter bakers chocolate.

Pours a deep brown with a small tan head and minimal lacing.

The smell is loaded with raisin and other dark fruits.

The taste has the dark fruit but it's more subtle and has nice roasted malts also.

The mouthfeel is medium thick with medium carbonation and a slightly thick, lingering finish.

Overall a nice easy to drink Belgian although the flavors are bit muted.
