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.

Kexin (2) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUN 16, 2012 does not count
Extremely good beer, this is probably the best I’ve ever had. Much better than the other classic Belgium beers. Malt taste, nice color.

fugitive (2005) - Athens, GREECE - JUN 6, 2012
Bottle. Color dark red with medium head. Aroma malt, roasted, caramel, dark fruits. Taste sweet, roasted, spicy, dark fruits.

JDBaker11058 (2223) - Maryland, USA - JUN 4, 2012
Appearance: lightly hazed mahogany with ruby edges, and a creamy light tan head slowly shrinking to a fat cap. Aroma: graham crackers, ginger snaps, and clove. Taste: toasty malts, a bit of brown sugar, some dark, plummy fruits, and a solid dose of yeasty goodness. Finish: notes of prunes or figs, with some caramel and yeasty spice/bitterness. Notes: Excellent dubbel. Palate was smooth and rich, but also drinkable. Flavors were sweet without cloying. Bottle from the Rare Beer Club.

drowland (8766) - Georgia, USA - MAY 28, 2012
5/28/12. 750mL bottle. Dark brown pour with a nice tan, almost yellowish head that sticks around and laces a bit. Aromas of roasted malts, dark fruits, yeast, and a hint of metal. Rich roasted malt character with touches of fruitiness and yeast. Pretty solid, if you ask me.

Damico (3147) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Pours a beautiful unclear amber crimson malt color with a decent beige head. The aroma brings subtle sweet malt and Belgian yeast notes. The flavor of pure smooth malts with some light bitterness settling on the tongue. The body is smooth with medium carbonation, right on the money. Delicious and one of the better Dubbels that I have ever had. The spices that you typically get in a Belgian are lacking for sure, but still a good product.

colinize (317) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 6, 2012
Pours a deep dark brown with red tint. Pillowy three finger, brown tinted head. Quite a pretty sight. Nose is bitter, slightly earthy - almost reminds me of the nose of a Heineken, though clearly not as bad. Initial head recedes quickly, but lingers at about a finger. Beer is exceptionally smooth - reminds me of a brown ale with more hop bitterness. Notes of coffee, rasins and earth. Definitely a delicious brew.

NikkTwist (3225) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2012
Draft at Monks. Dark orange brown with a lacey head. Sweet malty aroma. Some noticeable sour brett tang. Medium body. Caramel apple. Dried figs. Slight funk. Smooth finish, though the tangy taste lingers.

Ratman197 (14852) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 29, 2012
750 ml bottle poured a hazy reddish brown with a lasting amber head. Aromas of cola, carmel and light yeast. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of cola, cocoa, light yeast and light spice with a crisp lingering carmel finish.

Gerbeer (3758) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2012
Dusty 330 ml bottle at Kulminator. 2008 vintage. Pours a very dark brown with reddish tint and nice persistent head. Aromas of malt and brown sugar toffee. Rich and smooth, with spicy, toffee, and roasted malt flavors. Warm but good balance. A great beer.

blutt59 (6564) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 26, 2012
Bottle , dark red amber color with rocky white foam, fruit , leather and dirt aroma, flavor is weak fruit, brown sugar, leathery dust, thin finish
