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.

Bottle from a friend. Unable to discern color as I’m having this in a low-light environment. Aroma is nice with coffee, roasted malt and hints of licorice. Taste follows suit with a nice if not great lingering in the mouth. I didn’t know what to expect and was very positively surprised by both aroma and taste.

mcberko (6692) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 15, 2014
330mL bottle, pours a deep dark burgundy / brown with a medium beige head. Aroma is super yeasty and musty, with light herbally notes. Flavour is very similar, with more of the herbal and some vegetal notes also upfront, with a very yeasty body. Doesn’t seem so refined really. Good, but needs some refining.

An extremely complex belgian strong Beer. A beautiful red color and every time you taste it, you discover something new! At nose is fantastic and it persists for long time in your mouth. Red fruits, but also coffee and a little bit of tropical! Amazing!

rikstar (802) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2014
0,33l fles gedeeld met nikos. Donker bruin met een flinke lading gist en een ivoorkleurige kraag. Geur was rozenbottels met gist. Mooi vol mondgevoel zoetje aanwezig maar niet overheersend. Echt een hele goede Belgisch dubbel.
