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.

This beer pours a dark reddish brown with a small head. The aromas of dates, pecans, walnuts, caraway, rye bread, and a hint of smoke are noticeable. The flavor leads with a sort of buttery pecan feel, followed by a odd light smoke tone, like you are tasting the air from a barbecue next door, then raisins, oak, and cherrywood. The mouthfeel is semi rich, with a rather flat foam. Overall this is an enjoyable beer, but not one that knocks it out of the park. There are better examples of this style, but I can see this working great with a rich meal.

12 oz. bottle,bottled 08/28/2015. A new one to me from Bell's. No style listed on the bottle or label anywhere, I come to find it is categorized as a Dubbel.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - Pours an extremely dark cola-black colored body, almost stout-like in appearance, if I didn't know any better. Finger and a half of frothy khaki-cream head. 'Chocolatey' in appearance. Looks very frothy and creamy, but I wouldn't know this was a Dubbel style ale just by looking.

S - A yeasty, minerally aroma. Creamy & chocolatey, the Belgian yeast infiltrates a roasted Barley aroma. Smells almost more like a spiced Belgian stout than it does a Dubbel.

T - Taste follows the nose: roasted Barley malt, Belgian yeast / spices. Roasty, bitter, chocolatey. Again, almost more of a spiced Belgian stout. Not particularly flavorful or interesting. Mild suggestions of cloves.

M - Feel is creamy, and easy-drinking, with good carb. No overt alcohol presence. Fullish in body.

Overall, average and uninteresting, and not a terribly good stab at the style. Might possibly be a suitable candidate for aging a bottle for a year or so. Still, not an ale from Bell's I'm too interested in having again, but I might perhaps like to see how the barrel-aged version fares.

Bell's Hell Hath No Fury Ale -----3/5.
