COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bière brune de caractère. Procédé de brassage vigoureux, qui transmet son caractère à la bière. Etiquette sobre. Force de 8,8 % abv. Bouteille basse du type Duvel. Couleur brun roux profond. Clarté nette. Bulles assez grosses partout dans le verre. Mousse beige clair qui vient napper, crémeuse. Arômes de pomme de terre cuite, raisins secs, pain complet, avec une pointe de kirsch. 1ère bouche soyeuse mais structurée, sur du café, moka, et une pointe de mûres. Arrière-bouche de céréales, genièvre, gin et une fine pointe d’épices. 2ème sur du malt torréfié et du houblon ferme. 3ème sur du café, noix, noisettes, amandes pilées. Arrière-bouche sur du bois de fût, épices muscadées, houblon amer. Longueur avec de grands accents, de la vigueur et de la profondeur. Levure douce, fine, précise, bien pour une brune. Alcool bien dosé, pas du tout exagéré, mais pas faible non plus. Finale où on navigue avec un capitaine qui connaît son métier. Une bière qui tient la ligne sur toute la dégustation, plutôt du genre vigoureuse, mais dotée de beaucoup de saveur(s).

yngwie (16507) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 30, 2013
Bottle. A creamy, beige head leaving lacings forms over a dark copper to light brown body. Dried fruits in the aroma, having company of some light roasted malts and chocolate. A touch of spices too. The flavor has an underlying bitterness, dealing with the sweetness and dried fruis. Full body, pleasant carbonation. Bitter finish with dried fruits and some chocolate notes. A decent one, but far from as clean as some of the best dubbels. 130430

Mahogany pour with an off-white head. Nose is unpleasant. Green apple, paper, metal, and lemon juice. Some sweet banana, toasted bread, pepper, yeast, and a hint of cola. Not an enjoyable flavor, either. Leather, pepper, paper, metal, and lots of green apple. Notes of lemon zest, toasted bread, and tons of pepper. Kind of watery, too.
