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.

Pours a dark brown with a fluffy slighty tan head of foam.

Notes of berries, tobacco, leather, and other dark fruits.

Dark fruit takes the mainstage here with roasty notes on the finish.

Full bodied, medium carbonation, lingering bitterness.

Overall, not something I'd seek out again, but an interesting style and brew nonetheless.

Appearance: I did not expect it to be so dark…barely some ruby edges when held to the light; thin khaki head that leaves lacing

Aroma: yeast; malt; chocolate; banana and maybe some other fruits; a bit roasty; some coffee notes in there

Taste: a nice sweetness throughout; banana, cherry, and maybe some other fruits come to the front; moves into yeasty/bready/malty flavors; maybe a little spice in there too; finishes with some dark chocolate notes, a hint of coffee, and a bit roasty; slightly dry aftertaste, and bitter like you just had some really good dark chocolate

Mouthfeel: thick with a really nice creaminess to it; great carbonation; a mouth-coater; smooth and drinkable

Overall Impression: a very solid beer, with a lot going on; it smells absolutely wonderful; an interesting take on the style; I dig the aftertaste a lot

L- dark black with a little brown fizz no head
S- carmelized brown sugar, dark fruit
T- black coffee, black licorice, with a dark fruit-y finish

Overall a unique and flavorful beer, which is drinking like a sipper, but feels very drinkable as well

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.

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.
