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.

330ml bottle 7€ EXP 03/07/09 shared at Kaunis Kampela with FatPhil&Anna 290908 murky dark brown tiny white head Scent: like young Samiclaus or mämmi Taste: first kick dried fruits like plumes and raisins then rich roasted malts. Aftertaste dried fruits dominates more than roasted malts.Very enjoyable as dessert more please.

330ml bottle (Kaunis Kampela, Helsinki, Belgian Weeks)
Dark reddy-brown, small tight head. Rich sweet malty aroma - plums, but also rich malt loaf. Quite crisp carbonation. Pretty sweet taste - like the burnt raisins stuck to the side of a cake tin after baking. Rich roasty and cakey malt. Treacle. Mirjukka mentioned Samichlaus, and I think she’s not far out. Yum.

Bottled, 330ml, at t’Velootje, Ghent. Dark brown with cream head. Nice spritzy, lively, fresh bruin, fruity and not over spiced, giving a strong but smooth beer. Really very good.

dark roasted maltiness. This was a nice dubbel. paired with lamb and beef burger combo main dish I had at den djiver, bruges, and it was an excellent match. I think it was used in the food prep too.
