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.

Dark nut brown color, steady creamy beige head. Aroma has toffee, nuts, bready malts. Medium-bodied. Toffee, licorice, some hops, dark bread. Also some herbal notes, like drinking some kind of bitter (like Jägermeister) variant. Interesting enough.

Pours a dark brown beer. Beige head. Smells fresh and sour. Full round mouthfeeling. Tastes of nuts, dried fruits and roasted malts without the roasted malts being to aggressive. Very pleasant and long lasting aftertaste.

rand (1299) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 8, 2010
Bottle 33 cl from Willems in Grobbendonk (B). Attractive brunette ruby highlight under a beige foam medium. The crackling is nonexistent. Malty nose, typical of the dubbels, with chocolate but also raisins and apricots. The mouth is round and creamy but poweful with aromas of spices nutmeg-cinnamon. A hint of bitterness appears in the final even if this nectar, wich comes from the country of the speculoos, is slightly hopped.

Hazy mahogany with a large beige head. Sweet aroma with roasted malt, caramel and hints of chocolate. Sweet flavour with hard roasted malt, dark chocolate and coffee notes. Finished dry and roasted. Not bad.
