Trooper Red ‘n’ Black Porter is now available to pre-order from Robinsons’ online shop.

Red ‘n’ Black – a collaborative brew between heavy metal band Iron Maiden and Robinsons – is the third beer in the Trooper range following on from the Trooper and Trooper 66.

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 1850s, 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.
