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.

0,33L bottle, BB 07.08.16 (ABV 8,5%). Pours very dark brown-black with light tan head. The head stays. Aroma is dark fruits, metallic, malt, and yeast. Taste is dark bread, sweet, malt, dark fruits, roast, caramel, some wood and spices. Finish is caramel and roast bitterness. Overall: surprised by the intense handmade dark rye bread flavor. It really feels like drinking liquid dark bread.

Bottle 8,5%. Brown body, tall creamy head. Beautiful. Aroma has a warm bready roastiness and hints of Belgian yeast. Toasty and nutty taste with a really good balance. Good dry and toasty finish which always leaves you wanting to take another sip. Very good.

Dark, red brown with big offwhite head. Aroma has yeast, fruit, funk. Flavour is sweetish, juicy, dried fruit and boozy alcohol. Really nice.

Bardzo dobre klasztorne dubbel. Ciemne z liczna poswiata czerwieni. Ale sporo tez ciemnej mazi na dnie po dolaniu brudzi piwo do barwy ciemno brazowej i nieprzezroczystej. W smaku karmel, brazowy skarmelizowany cukier, biszkopty i na koniec podpieczony chleb tostowy. Zapach dojrzalych sliwek w czekoladzie. Troche porto ale nie wyczuwa sie alkoholu. Glebia smaku i tresciwosci. Piwo o sporej gestej i puchatej bezowej pianie. Polecam

ABT_S54 (203) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2014
33cl served in a Trappist glass. Pours a well carbonated dark brown colour with the best head I have seen - thick, foamy and off-white. The aroma is malty and warming. Tastes of coffee, malts and dusty chocolate - much like the Westvleteren 8. One of the best dubbels I have tried. Less fruity than a typical - say St. Bernardus Prior 8 - dubbel but no worse off for it. Try it if you can.
