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.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2008 75 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a lacing off-white head. Light citrus spiced aroma. Flavour is malty and floral perfumed to spiced. Ends malty and similar floral spiced. Another too spiced no match to me.

It’s aroma is very spicy with a hint of malt. I really like the flavor- it’s very unexpected and seems like it would go well with chili or southwestern food. I think I’m done rating for the night. I’m drunk. :)

The aroma is the most unique of any beer that I have had to date. That is not necessarily a good or bad thing, it’s just different. There are ton’s of spices here, to many to mention. The other element is malt. The appearance is cloudy amber with a nice head. The flavor is complex like the aroma and unusual but not bad. The palate is a little thin. Overall this is one of those beers that I think you should try at least once but not one to have over and over.

Bottle. Pours a clear dark copper with a two finger lasting rocky light tan head that leaves good lacing. Heavy aroma of spices with the anise really sticking out, bubblegum, and caramel. Taste is the same as aroma with a hint of spicy peppery curry goodness. Medium mouthfeel with a mild to moderate amount of bitterness and well hidden alcohol. Very good.

750. Thanks, Boboski! Pours slightly hazy, very luminescent medium amber with a thick moussy tan head that falls slowly to a thin film of mousse across the top of the beer. Red pitted tree fruit, licorice, and an intoxicating whirl of cooking spices all show up in the nose. The aromatics are really hard to piece apart, actually. Body’s on the light side of medium, not much carb. Fruity, slightly candy-like, and earthily spicy mid-palate. Somewhat bubble-gummy finish...not just your ordinary bubble gum, either, but that dry stuff ya get with Bazooka Joe that has the preservative powder in it. *That* kind of bubble gum on the finish. This is definitely a wild child.

Cloudy dark caramel. Despite being a gusher upon opening, the head settles quickly into the shape of a small off-white ring. Spice-focused, anisey and strong curry flavours with soy and sesame toast nuances. Its base is clearly Belgian, you can tell as much from the upfront yeastiness than the growing fizz of medium to big sized bubbles. Finishes with oranges, more toast and obviously lots of spices. Chaotic.
