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.

JayBaxter (407) - Greater Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2010
Murky deep dark reddy brown with a creamy beige lasting head, aroma is sweet, very toffee-ish with a fruity edge. Taste is instantly chocolately (cocoa) dried fruits and toffee are also in there, the finish is pherhaps a little bitter but this doesn’t detract from a great beer.

MoritzF (8676) - Bochum, GERMANY - NOV 15, 2009
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, ruby amber colour with a big and beige, slowly lacing foamy head. Sweet and slightly yeasty toast-malty aroma with notes of toffee, peanuts, a mildly fruity touch of blackberries and shades of alcohol. Sweet and slightly vinous-acidic flavour, medium to full bodied with a calm carbonation. Toasty malty base with a light but present fruitiness, well-embedded and delicate notes of caramel/toffee; moderately sweet and roasty bitter finish, again with vinous accents. Pretty flavourful and rounded brew. 15.XI.09

Bottle from 2 be in Bruges. Pours a dark ruby? brown with a large tan head. Aromas of dark fruit, dark malt and other dark things. Medium body with very frothy carbonation. First impression is chocolate. Maybe some raisin. Seems sticky, though not overly sweet. Goes with a bit of coffee in the fairly dry finish. Interesting and good.

fiulijn (16003) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 13, 2009
Dark brown color, hazy; nice head, reducing to a thin layer. Chocolate aroma and strong chocolate flavor, very good; the body has a medium strength; the bitterness is low; the final is a bit nutty; there is some caramel and the malt is never burnt. Not complex but well brewed chocolate beer.
