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.

A gorgeous pour with a dark Burgundian body, a sparkling carbonation at first with a thick and fluffy beige head. The nose is sweet, candied brown sugar, raisin, caramel, and a sweet taffy throughout. A bit of an odd fruity nose that I can’t quite place. Rather sweet and candied with molasses and brown sugar, prune, raisin and cherries. A beautiful caramel and toasted roasted malts. A bit odd and astringent on the finish though. Great brew!

hayduke (4948) - Eureka, California, USA - OCT 5, 2012
A draft pour at THE LOCA:L beer bar in Eureka, CA. . Pours a dark ruby with brown mixed in with a large and robust tan head leaving good lacing. Nose is of ripe dark fruit. Medium in body with a well carbonated mouthfeel. Flavor is rich with chocolate along with the fruit which tastes like plums and raisins. The finish is dry and not too sweet. This is a very tasty beer, and exceptionally easy to drink.

Tap. Pours murky brown with thin beige head; decent retention and spare lacing. Aroma is roast and caramel malts, heavy dark fruit (figs, dates, cherries), booze, grassy hops, and yeast. Flavor is sweet malt forward with good dark fruit esters and hops (light bitterness); oak and faint booze undertones with a slightly bitter finish.Med/full body, low carbonation, and medium warmth.

GuldenHoeck (11) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 17, 2012
Koffiecreme schuim, rood bruin van kleur , mooi fruit en kruiden in het aroma. Eerste smaak doet een beetje ijzerachtig aan maar verdwijnt snel voor een afdronk van caramel en een beetje fruit. Mooi bittertje op het einde.

AdamChandler (4540) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Bottle at BCTC. Light dark brown maroon. 1 finger head. Orange wheat and some spices. Pretty sweet but an overall weak scent and taste. "spiced lager" is what friends called it. Not a fan of this overall. The sweetness and spices were dominating.

Dark brown, hazy. Light brown head. very nice, well-balanced Dubbel. Rate is somewhat cheesy, some dark fruit, distant chocolate, something funky. Nice one.
