This seasonable spring beer is one of my favorites, and I buy a some growlers each year at the downtown Indianapolis location. It is perhaps the best of the Sun King offerings, and it rates well alongside the German varieties. I'm sorry when it's season ends. I've been disappointed with many of their other beers that taste like mad mixes of this or that. I wish Sun King made the Dominator Dopplebock available all all year as their flagship beer.

Draft: Poured a clear brown color bock with a nice brown foamy head with OK retention and light lacing. Aroma of banana bread with light caramelized malt notes is quite pleasant. Taste is also a mix of banana bread with some caramelized toffee notes and some residual sugar notes. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Well balanced with good drinkability.
