Translated from the Dutch on the brewery website.
Brewing process: Vicaris Generaal is made in three stages like the Tripel: warm fermentation at around 24°C, lagering at approximately 1°C and secondary fermentation in the bottle. The only difference between them is that the Tripel is brewed with one malt variety and Generaal with three. Vicaris Generaal is also brewed without spices.

- Ingredients: water, malt, sugar, hops and yeast.

- Tasting notes: Vicaris Generaal (8.8% ABV) is a red-brown warm fermented beer with a beautiful tinted head, conditioned in both bottle and keg. Generaal will mature in the bottle and is for the experienced beer lover. Generaal has a marked bitterness obtained by using roasted malt and hops. It is not a sweet beer.
- Available in 330ml and 750ml bottles and 30l kegs.

Note: Brewed by De Proef before their brewery opened in 2011.

Minderbinder (3297) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 7, 2013
Bottle 330ml. Pours dark brown with very high creamy beige head. Nice lacing. Aroma is of dark fruits, caramel, sugar, malt. Taste is of dark fruits, caramel, sweetness, sligthly roasted malt, some underlying bitterness. Palate: Medium body. Sticky. Overall: Sweet. A tad harsh. Not easily drinkable. A decent dubbel, but lacking finesse-wise.

probstblueribbon (3726) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2013
33 cl bottle from Bieropholie, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Deep mahogany, cloudy?, with a full light deep tan head. Aroma: Quite vinous off the start, licorice-molasses, very dark, lacks the dark dried fruitiness expected of the style, very dark bread crust (rye bread?), finally some dark dried fruits. Palate: Medium+ body, smooth, somewhat relaxed effervescence. Flav.: Vinous, light root beer herbals, very dark, black strap molasses and licorice, still not as much fruitiness expected for a Dubbel, dark rye crust; dry with minimal bitterness, light tartness and a fairly long, inky, almost molasses finish.

Sammy (11247) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2013
Licorice and malt, was this brewed 3 years yore? Brown with bubbly head. Bang on aroma. Middling bang on mouthfeel. OK drinkability, better with a meal.

mathieuc (3391) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 16, 2013
Pours a red-ish brown with a thin white head that leave some lacings. Aroma is discrete with plums, sugar and raisins. Taste is not sweet, feeling sour at times (there must be some kind of acidity in there). Flavors are green grapes, candi sugar, molasse. Overall an OK dubbel, nothing extraordinary.
