    Had my first few pints of Red and Black Trooper last Saturday. Was in Cambridge UK for the weekend with the girlfriend and happened to find a pub that had it on tap. Big fan of porter ales and this one was superb. Just wish it was more widely available in pubs in the UK.

    Will have to get online and order me some bottles now.

    Just had a bottle with snow crab in the backyard today for late dinner. It was pretty damned good. Classic sweet(ish) English porter with dry chocolate and slightly bitter berry notes to it. And, when the sunlight hits the glass right... it really is red and black!

    I am guessing they are thinking some fans of the band will buy extra to have it in their collection and/or a slightly "friendlier" Eddie/brighter colors to make it stand out on the shelves in stores.

    That's true. They are very smart at getting their fans to buy literally everything and making us feel good about it.

    I like it... but... I ain't changin' my avatar.

    Many beers get rebranded every couple of years to keep them looking relevant.
     
  11. Tastes a lot nicer on tap when you can find it! A couple of years ago me and my girlfriend were in London and walked into a bar that sold it with Iron Maiden pint glasses... ashamed to say I took one with me!
