Trooper Red & Black label


Trooper Red & Black

TROOPER RED 'N' BLACK Porter is the first dark beer in the Trooper ranks and a modern take on a recipe dating back centuries. The red and black color comes from a blend of chocolate and crystal malt which gives the full-bodied beer a roasty, caramel backbone. The Robinsons yeast provides hints of licorice and honey. A deliciously warming brew!

Designed by IRON MAIDEN vocalist and ale aficionado Bruce Dickinson and the Head Brewer at Robinsons brewery, TROOPER RED 'N' BLACK takes its inspiration from a very early Robinsons recipe from the 1850's; a time when porter beers were becoming popular in Britain.

Available from September, 2016 through early 2017.

Taking its name from the Maiden song inspired by Tennysonís Charge of the Brigade, Trooper is a premium British beer created by Bruce Dickinson and Iron Maiden and handcrafted at Robinsons Brewery. Being a real ale enthusiast, lead vocalist Bruce Dickinson has developed a beer which has true depth of character. Malt flavours and citric notes from a unique blend of Bobec, Goldings and Cascade hops dominate this deep golden ale with a subtle hint of lemon.
