This Belgian Abbey Double 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.
It has a creamy tan head rising above a deep mahogany beer. The nose has sweet notes of roasted malt and delicate fruit, the body is full and rich with a fine hop bitterness on the finish. One reviewer writes: 'It is like drinking a rich piece a black forest cake with a spicy kick at the end.' It has softly sweet malt, gentle roasted bitterness, hints of port, dark fruit, figs, raisin, chocolate and toffee with a long elegant finish.
Featured in the World Atlas of Beer, authors Tim Webb and Stephen Beaumont note 'this strong brown ale smells heavily roasted and tastes of bread crust, falling somewhere between a Scotch and a dark tripel.'
