City Beverage, the Official Beer Sponsor of The Less Desirables, presents Hell Hath No Fury Ale by Bell’s Brewery, The Less Desirables Beer of the Week.
Some disclosure here, we had this beer on The Beer Dads this past week (although you won’t hear it for a few weeks) and I thought it was delicious. It’s called an ale but it’s more along the lines of a stout, chocolaty and coffee-like. I remember some caramel notes, too. The yeast used to brew this beauty is of the Belgian Abbey variety. It’s a strong dark ale and I emphasize strong with 7.7% ABV. It’s a great tasting beer that gets better when you let it warm up a bit. The colder it is the more thin the flavor. As it warms it expands and becomes quite robust.
Untappd has it at 3.73 caps out of 5. BeerAdvocate has it rated at 85 (Very Good); there is no “Bro” score. Have you had this before? Well, I’m going to say that you should. Bell’s Two-Hearted and Oberon are neither faves of mine, but anything that Bell’s does that falls in the darker range, that’s always money. If you want to try this whilst listening to The Less Desirables, you should run to City Beverage and get your very own sixer of it. Tell Spencer that you heard this was the Beer of the Week and you’ll get 5% off your order. Tune in tonight or later this week to hear how Caitlin, Superfan Damien, Bruce and I rate this beer. I can already tell you it’s a pretty good rating from me. Prost! Saluti! Santé! Sláinte! Salud! Cheers!
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
“Originally conceived along the lines of a Belgian Dubbel, Hell Hath No Fury… Ale morphed during development into something entirely different. Brewed with Belgian abbey-style yeast, Hell Hath No Fury … Ale is more akin to a roasty stout, offering warm, roasted notes of coffee & dark chocolate with fruity & clove-like aromas.” – Bell’s Hell Hath No Fury website
