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.

wedgie9 (2702) - 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.

Dark, beige foam. Balanced, slight roasted sweetness. A bit estery and with some subdued bitterness.

Bottle. Fluffy, creamy light yellow-brown head on a very dark red, also black beer. Roasty, caramel nose, bubblegum, candi. Crisp, light roast, malty body, bready. A very tasty beer, and moreish. A well crafted strong dubbel, and one I will certainly have again.

Spora czapa dość trwałej piany, mahoniowa, opalizująca barwa samego trunku. Aromat drożdżowy, słodowy, zbożowy, do tego trochę rodzynek, suszonych gruszek, ciemnego miodu, karmelu... W smaku podobnie, półsłodkie, skojarzenia z kompotem wigilijnym, ciastem drożdżowym ze sliwkami, na finiszu sporo pikantnych fenoli. Goryczka niska, ziołowo przyprawowa, rozgrzewający alkohol, intensywne, drobne wysycenie, lekko wyklejające, nie gęste w odbiorze.
Poprawne piwo, dla mnie nieco brzeczkowe, drożdżowe w odbiorze, co ewidentnie mi przeszkadza.

Trolleo (1567) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 12, 2017
Cloudy brown color and medium sized tan head. Plum aroma, dark fruit, everything nice but somehow weak. Taste is dried fruit and chocolate mostly, very nice. Full body, soft carbonation. Not my favorite style but this one is quite nice.

Ysok02 (1564) - Mons, BELGIUM - MAY 11, 2017
Robe brune, fine mousse, moyennement persistante. Nez élégant sur des notes chocolatées, café au lait, malt torréfié, noisette grillée, belle complexité dans son élégance. Bouche à l’attaque onctueuse, pointe de café au lait, de la finesse, bulle crémeuse, de l’équilibre, de la longueur et une finale sur les fruits secs et le café. Une très belle bière digeste et équilibrée.

Výtečné pivo se skvělou hořkostí, řízností i masivností. Dobré aroma. Hodně podobné Trappistu Rockerford.

Thanks Sharky! Thick beige big head, lasting. Ruby-brown clear body. Dried red fruit and spice on pollen and strong maltiness. Very nice! Dry taste dominated by dry caramel and some estery fruitiness. Ends on a sugary note. Bit soapy.Nice enough.
