Iron Maiden Announce Limited Edition Trooper Red 'N' Black Beer

(hennemusic) Iron Maiden will expand their Trooper beer line with a limited edition run of Trooper Red 'N' Black this September. The porter follows last year's Trooper 666 as the second limited-edition beverage produced by the band and UK brewers Robinsons.

The beer, designed once again by Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson along with Robinsons' Head Brewer Martyn Weeks, takes its inspiration from a very early Robinsons recipe which was first brewed in the 1850's; a time when porter style beer was becoming increasingly popular in Britain.

"I like tasting outside the box," explains Dickinson. "Stouts and porters were virgin territory for me so I just went by feel. Martyn and I hope we have created a new take on a classic beer and one which I hope will tickle the taste buds of ale fans in a pleasantly unexpected way."

At 6.8% in bottle or 5.8% ABV in cask, Trooper Red 'N' Black is the strongest beer in the range to date.

The porter takes it name from both the colour of the beer - which glows red when held up to light - and the song "The Red And The Black" from Iron Maiden's 2015 album "The Book Of Souls." The drink uses a blend of chocolate and crystal malts which help give the beer a roasted malt and caramel backbone, alongside hints of both liquorice and honey. Read more and see the artwork here.
