NEW IRON MAIDEN BEER              - RED N' BLACK - NOW AVAILABLE TO PRE-ORDER

New Iron Maiden beer - TROOPER Red 'N'Black Porter

Contain your excitement! TROOPER Red n’ Black – a new collaborative brew between IRON MAIDEN and ROBINSONS BREWERY – is now available to PRE-ORDER direct from Robinsons’ online shop

Red ‘N’ Black Porter is the third beer in the TROOPER range following on from the stunning success of TROOPER and last year’s limited edition TROOPER 666.

The beer, designed once again by IRON MAIDEN vocalist and ale aficionado Bruce Dickinson together with Robinsons’ Head Brewer Martyn Weeks, is a modern take on a recipe that dates back to the 1850’s; a time when porter style beer was becoming increasingly popular in Britain.

At 6.8% in bottle or 5.8% ABV in cask, TROOPER Red ‘N’ Black Porter is the first dark beer in the TROOPER ranks and the strongest beer in the range to date.

Named after a track from the latest Iron Maiden album ‘The Book Of Souls’, the red and black colour comes from the blend of chocolate and crystal malts which gives this full bodied beer a roasted malt and caramel backbone. The special Robinsons’ yeast provides hints of both liquorice and honey character to create a delicious warming brew.
