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.

Silvan7 (636) - Samarate, ITALY - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle @ home. Schiuma beige non molto fine abbastanza persistente. Colore marrone riflessi rosso rubino, opalescente. Aroma intenso complesso di liquirizia, cacao, lievito belga liquore, caramello, frutta secca. Dolce amabile, poco acida, si ritrovano caramello, cioccolato, malto zucchero di canna e nocciola. Poco corposa ,calda, rotonda perfettamente bilanciata ed armonica. Grande dubbel.

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 (654) - 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.

Lele (84) - ITALY - JUN 23, 2014
Buon aroma (anche se non particolarmente persistente): si percepisce del maltato, frutta secca e tostato. In bocca si percepisce decisamente il maltato, con qualche sentore di frutta secca. L’alcol si sente nella bevuta, ma non in maniera decisa. Una buona dubbel, anche se non alla pari con quella di la Trappe e Chimay.

martjoobolut (555) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 22, 2014
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.

thirstyrabbit (1065) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 18, 2014
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
