Shangrila was the first creation from Birrificio Troll. It is of dark amber color and has a persistent head and with its 8.5 alc./vol. it warms the palate and the heart. Shangrila is brewed using malt, English hops and a mixture of spices from the Himalayas: tandori (Blend of coriander, cumin, garlic powder, paprika, ginger, cardamom, saffron), curry, pepper, anise. Shangrila is a complex full bodied beer with exotic scents and an intense flavor. Shangrila is a perfect companion for meats of every type, especially ones grilled over charcoal. It also pairs very well with fine cheeses.

Tasted during Nepenthia. Amber brown color. Thin white head. No lace sticks. Hazy body, with bits of particles inside. Caramel, some fig, pear. Nuts. Some spice, something like cinnamon. Medium-plus body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Light slick. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. Pretty pleasant overall.

Tap. This was one of my first introductions to the barleywine style (or so I was told when I ordered it) and I have been hooked ever since. Uber strong malt flavour which is still well balanced by the bittering hops. Delicious!

Aroma is funky. Taste is malty and spicy. This is a delicious beer. Worth a try and probably a second or 3rd. ---AJ's Approval

5.5 euro for 500ml at Hop in Milano. I should know the background to this beer (my store sells it) but alas I am tasting blind. Heavy set at 8.5% and seems to be in the Tripel territory or high abv Beglian IPA. I’m getting some spicy hop action late. Thickens with a treacle note and cooked fruit. Good for what it is.

Si presenta con un bell’ambrato carico e una schiuma compatta e persistente. Al naso prevalentemente frutta e spezie. In bocca la componente alcolica si fa sentire un pò troppo e le spezie si sentono ma secondo me sono un abbastanza slegate fra loro. Sinceramente non mi ha convinto, anzi...

On tap @ slowfood Cheese, BRA. profumo intrigante, tra il dolce e lo speziato. Si avverte bene una dolcezza fruttata, come di mela candita c’è del caramello e sicuramente dell’anice e dello zenzero. Colore ambrato carico con schiuma beige scarico, poco persistente anche se abbastanza fine. Il gusto è altrrettanto dolciastro, ma si avvertono molto di più le spezie, che solleticano la lingua in vario modo. il gusto è intenso persistente,piacevolente corposa, rimane calda alcolica a lungo sulla lingua, pochissimo luppolata, ma con luppoli arumati...
