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.

750 ml bottle @ RBNAG-11. Hazy amber/orange body with a small off-white head. Strange aroma of ripe (close to rotten) fruit and perfume, as strange as it might sound not really unpleasant, just weird. Flavor is strange as well, overripe/rotten fruit, spices, some malt and apple cider. Medium body. Very unusually and probably not by intention, still not undrinkable and I think its becoming more like a mix of a spicy saison and well matured apple cider. Would really like to try it as it was intended to be.

A me e piaciuta e non poco, per poco non mi ubriaco. E forte certo ma si beve che e un piacere! Bellissimo colore ambrato ottima schiuma persistente, aroma intenso speziato, le spezie imalayane si sentono eccome, abbastanza dolce e non troppo luppolata! Buona buona!

RuneStumo (2582) - Haugesund, NORWAY - NOV 12, 2011
15.10.2011. 0,75l Bottle. Dark golden brown colour with white head. This beer must be infected by something. Its both sweet and sour, and there is lots of alcohol! I cant decide wether its rothen fruit or nail polish remover.

Palme (4167) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 31, 2011
0.75l bottle @ RBNAG11. Pours a light clouded pale orange body with a small bubbly sidesticking head. The aroma is light peachy, tones of alcohol, apples, light sweet and some pineapple. Average carbonation level and a oily mouthfeel. Some distinct tones of alcohol in the flavor, caramel, dry tannin-tones and some light sour hints in the light spicy finish. Strange stuff, and Im not really sure what to think of it.

ClubGonzo (5464) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 30, 2011
Shared bottle at RBNAG 11 @ Haandverkerstuene, Oslo. Hazy nougat brown body, small white head. Nose is caramel, booze, raisins and hints of yeast. Nail polish, nuts and alcoholic yeasty tones. Strange, chemical-like and definitely not good. Some extra points for originality, though, keep on trying Italy! :-P
