Robinsons Brewery Releases Third Iron Maiden Beer

Trooper Red 'N' Black Robinsons Brewery Porter Beer

Robinsons Brewery in Stockport, England has released the third beer in its Trooper Line of Iron Maiden collaboration beers.

The band's thunderous lead singer, Bruce Dickinson, is a craft beer fan and has spearheaded the group's collaboration beers with the help of Robinson's. "I like tasting outside the box. Stouts and porters were virgin territory for me so I just went by feel," Dickinson said in a release on Iron Maiden's website. "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.”

Trooper Red 'N' Black is a 6.8 percent ABV English Porter, which makes it the strongest beer, alcohol-wise, in the Trooper lineup. The beer is brewed with chocolate and crystal malts, providing a roasty, caramel-like malt backbone coupled with an earthy hop character.

This limited-release beer will be available around the world starting in early September.
