COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dominator exudes the aromas of brown sugar and molasses, inviting you to indulge in its malty goodness This full flavored beer has hints of gingerbread and sun- dried raisins with the crisp finish, which is indicative of lagers.

Draft to taster. Looks good for the style; a transparent copperish orange with foamy off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells sweet and malty. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Solid beer.

Block (1313) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Sweet and malty. A nice brown pour. I thought this beer had much more flavor and character than other Sun King offerings lately. Caramel, molasses, and a little bit of gingerbread as described.

Overml01 (225) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Draft at the Fort Wayne release party at CS3. Molasses... brown sugar... dark fruit... yea, this is just exactly the kind of beer I like drinking. A touch creamy with a frothy mouthfeel and just a hint of a boozy finish. Yum. Despite the 8.1 ABV, it felt like I could drink this all night. Although it was the last beer I had before my wife finally corralled me and ushered me home, it could have been the first of many more if not for the dayís late hour and the wifeís hateful glower. (God Iím clever when Iím drunk.)

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Draft sample at the brewery. Pours a semi-cloudy amber color with a small off-white head. Notes of toasted and caramel malts, nuts, mildly spiced sweet bread, dried fruits (raisins, dates, prunes), and just a bit of earth. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a rich, malty mouthfeel. Very, very good doppelbock.

Dogbrick (7571) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2012
On cask at MacNivenís in Indy. The beer pours dark brown with a thin beige head that diminishes quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, coffee and caramel. Medium to full body with a roasty malt and coffee character and notes of dark fruits and caramel. The finish is sweet and malty. Above average overall.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 6, 2012
Clear brown pour with a lastin ring of foam. Nose is bread, caramel, toffee, nuts, and roasted breads. Flavor is intense maltiness, caramels, toffees, rich nutty toasted malts. Surprisingly semi-dry in the finish but still nutty and caramelly rich. Even just a touch of bitterness in the finish. Medium full body and crisp carbonation. Enjoyable.

Jethro6191 (418) - Indiana, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Growler from the brewery. Dark brown with a fleeting ivory head that disipates to a thin ring around the glass. Rich malty aroma with a touch of fruitiness. Clean lager flavor with malt, toast, raisin, and prune notes. Smooth mouthfeel with low carbonation, full body, and a slight alcohol warmth.

Tmoney99 (10399) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2010
Draft. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average fizzy off-white head that mostly lasted and good lacing. Moderate toasted malt and dark fruit aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted sweet flavor with a medium dark fruit sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid brew.
