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.

laiti (6821) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 16, 2012
33 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu. Rated on 13.04.2011
Aroma is spicy with lots of anise and licorice. Also hints of sugar. Flavour is really stuffed with anise and licorice. Also some other spices and brown sugar. Feels a lot like Gouden Carolus Christmas. Not your typical Dubbel.

erickok (4126) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - FEB 25, 2012
Beautiful red with a creamy tan head. Very rich in fruit, dark malts, hint of sourness, caramel and cloves. Medium, fizzy carbonation and medium heavy body. Not only a solid sweetness but also some sharp hops. But sticky in the end. Very classic Belgian, but we’ll made. Pleasant drink, if not multiple on a night. (33cl bottle, cheap)
