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.

[Bottled] Cloudy dark amber, very rich head. Strong herbal aroma, where I get mostly nutmeg and cardamom. Sweet and softly malty with full body. Evident flavour of burnt malt, notes of spun sugar. Think Anchor OSA, but bigger and softer.
