COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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!

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!

Bottle at LCRBM 2, Kulminator, Antwerp, Belgium
Hazy, orange body. Very complex and overwhelming aroma of spices, liquor. Moderately bitter, lightly sweet flavour. Quite some complexity in the flavour. Very nice beer!

Floback (522) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 25, 2008
750 ml bottle from Knightly Spirits. Pours a caramel/amber color with 1.5 inches of tan head that reduces quickly. Spotty lacing. The nose is strong with grapefruit. Flavors are boozy with strong characteristics of bourbon, light fruits, subtle hops, spices, pepper, moldy shoes, and candi sugar. Bitter but well-rounded mouthfeel. There’s a helluva a lot of natural sediment floating around. By the end of the bottle, the brew resembles a clump of mud; looking almost solidified. Medium carbonation and body. Very interesting and complex.

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.

LCRBM2. Cloudy dark copper colour. Souor aroma. Interesting vinous fruit flavours in mouth. Interesting. So alive in the mouth, spicey, quite dry on finish.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - FEB 5, 2008
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.

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