BEER INFO

Style: Dubbel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.70%

Availability: Rotating

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.

12 oz bottle, about 6 months old

very dark brown, and foamy cream colored head. aroma is bready, some raisin, earthy. taste is balanced - some caramel sweetness but not too much. depth of flavors is good. medium to thicker mouthfeel. not sure I'd peg this as a Dubbel, but definitely a tasty dark ale.

Dark brown to light black in color with a minimal of light seeping through. There's a fingernail of tan colored head surrounding the rim of the glass and covering about half of the middle. There's plenty of light sediment throughout the body. I smell raisins, black licorice, dark Belgian candy sugar, and a hint of molasses and smoke. I taste dark raisins, Belgian candy sugar, alcohol, and fig. The body is slightly warm with alcohol and lightly chewy.

A - Pours a very dark brown with a two finger tan head. The head receds quickly. Very light lacing.

S - Aromas are dark roasted malts and Belgian yeast.

T - The flavor is raisins, plums, Belgian yeast, and roasted malts. There is a woody smokiness in the finish.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Very smooth mouthfeel with a crisp dry finish.

O - This is an interesting mix of Dubbel and Belgian Stout. Definetly worth checking out.
