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.

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...

Silvan7 (584) - Samarate, ITALY - SEP 23, 2013
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...

750ml bottle. Deep honey amber colour with a good sized head of sand coloured foam. Lots of spice in the aroma which is pleasant and inviting. Full in the mouth with a rich full flavour and long lasting aftertaste.

750 ml bottle courtesy of dazz3. Pours very hazy amber with a frothy offwhite head that leaves a small sticky trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sweet, fruity and perfume like with sweet dark bread, orange peal, grapefruit juice, mango, resinous wood, marzipan, cherries in brandy, lemon juice, dark grapes, grass and hints of pine. Taste is sweet and slightly malty with sweet dark bread, cherries, grapefruit juice, resinous wood, red apples, marzipan, red wine and grass. Mouthfeel is slightly crisp, slightly tart and light to medium bodied. Finish is slightly sour and tart with biscuits, dark grapes, wood, sour cherries, crackers and grass. Quite tart which I think adds depth to this beer.
