I am a big fan of Victory Brewing. Their offerings are usually excellent, and the Yakima Twilight is no exception to that general rule. It was maltier than I expected, almost chocolatey, but that is not a complaint. The malts are more prominent than the hops, but the hops are definitely present in a resinous sticky aroma and flavor. It is a complex and interesting beer, with a touch of smokiness, and well worth a tipple. This is described by Victory as an American Strong Ale, and at 8.7% ABV, it is certainly strong. It reminded me of a porter, albeit a hoppy porter. No matter how it is described, it gets an 8/10.
