Robinsons And Iron Maiden Launch Limited Edition Trooper Red ‘N’ Black Worldwide

The Red N Black Bottle
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 nationwide 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 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.
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 5th and online at http://www.robinsonsbrewery.com 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.

New Iron Maiden Beer – Red N’ Black – Now Available To Pre-Order Online

Iron Maiden

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.

Iron Maiden And Robinsons Brewery Announce Their Latest Edition Beer

Trooper

Iron Maiden and Robinsons Brewery have announced ‘TROOPER Red ‘N’ Black – a new limited edition beer from their award-winning TROOPER* range – which will be available worldwide from September 2016.

TROOPER 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 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.

Bruce Dickinson explains: “I like tasting outside the box. 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.

Taking its 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 critically acclaimed 2015 album The Book of Souls, TROOPER Red ‘N’ Black uses a blend of chocolate and crystal malts which help give the beer a roasted malt and caramel backbone. Robinsons yeast, the same strain which has been used in the Stockport brewer’s beers since 1942, provides hints of both liquorice and honey to create a delicious warming brew.

John Robinson, Brands Manager for Robinsons Brewery said: “With millions of pints sold in 55 countries worldwide it’s safe to say that TROOPER remains a phenomenal success. Last year, we released TROOPER 666 at the request of the fans and this year we are happy to be releasing another limited edition beer that broadens the TROOPER range in an ever evolving and vibrant beer market.”

Robinsons have been taking global trade pre-orders from the beginning of March, to try and ensure that the limited edition bottles will be available simultaneously in local outlets in as many countries as possible around the world by autumn.

Information on pre-orders for fans will be announced on Iron Maiden Beer’s and Robinsons Brewery’s social media accounts.

*TROOPER has won the BBI (British Bottlers’ Institute) Gold Medal 2014, 2015 in their annual blind tasting sessions.
