Trooper Red ‘N’ Black, the third beer from Iron Maiden and Robinsons Brewery, has been released worldwide through import partners and at selected Morrisons stores in the UK.
The beer will also be available in cask from selected Robinsons pubs and through national listings.
The limited edition 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 1850s, a time when porter style beer was becoming increasingly popular in Britain.
At 6.8% in bottle or 5.8% ABV in cask, Red ‘N’ Black Porter is the first dark beer in the Trooper ranks and the strongest beer in the range to date.
Bruce Dickinson said: “It’s exciting news that we will be exporting this porter, a uniquely British ale style, to beer drinkers around the world.
“It’s a great tasting drop, even if I do say so myself, and the name chose itself when we saw it in the glass.”
John Robinson, Brands Manager for Robinsons Brewery said: “We are delighted to be continuing our partnership with a third beer in the Trooper range.
“Iron Maiden have some of the most passionate fans in the world so the opportunity to create another beer and expand the ranks of the TROOPER beer range is one that we jumped at the chance to do.
“We hope that this beer will be a great introduction to new drinkers into a darker variety of beers.”
Trooper Red ‘N’ Black in bottle is available to purchase at selected Morrisons stores in the UK from September 5 and online at the Robinsons website for the UK and select countries.
Red ‘N’ Black will also be available in cask at 5.8% ABV at selected Robinsons pubs and through national listings with Molson Coors, Mitchells and Butlers, Heineken, Enterprise, Carlsberg, Admiral Taverns, Greene King and J D Wetherspoon.
