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.

wedgie9 (2513) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 28, 2013
Tasted on 1/27/13 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle from the Rare Beer Club. Pours a very dark mahogany color with a very thick beige head that slowly recedes to super thick and rocky lace. The nose is malty but dry with cocoa nibs, some chocolate, cola, and vanilla. The flavor is the same, very dry with the cola notes up front, moving to the toasted cocoa nibs and a nice dose of roasted bitterness. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long cola and bitter roasted finish.

suprchunk (2684) - Crestview, Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2015
Overly sweet dubbel. Too much brown sugar notes mixed in the somewhat malty presence. Not as hot as I would have thought though.

ForlornHope (216) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2015
33 cl bottle at home. Pours a deep mahogany red with a slightly off-white head. Aroma of slight roast, pear-drop and stewed fruit. Taste is very slightly sweet, then hugely bitter. Lots of flavours of rich stewed fruit, licorice and a lingering bitterness, balanced with a good mouthfeel. Overall, a really good beer.
