Di colore ambrato carico, è una versione speciale della Shangrila, meno alcolica e meno speziata, che prevede l’utilizzo di una piccola percentuale di malto torbato, solitamente usato dalle distillerie scozzesi. L’affumicatura risulta molto delicata al naso e dona alla birra una struttura molto intensa e sapori che evocano i retrogusti dei Whiskey scozzesi. Progettata e realizzata con lo scopo di abbinarla alla carne alla brace. Disponibile solo in bottiglia.

Theydon_Bois (18474) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, - OCT 5, 2012
Tap at Open Baladin, Roma - 04/10/12. Clear dark amber with a big frothy tan head. Nose is of toffee, fudge, spice a little smoke, dark fruits and Belgian yeast. Tastes of light caramel, bread, biscuit, dark fruits, smoke and some spice. Full bodied with soft carbonation leading to a bitter smoked finish.

fiammanghilla (971) - Genova, ITALY - AUG 7, 2013
Bottiglia 75cl, comprata in birrificio e bevuta a casa. Ambrata piuttosto scura con schiuma fine non troppo persistente. Al naso una zaffata di spezie e un pizzico di affumicato. In bocca si conferma una certa complessità legata alle spezie e ai malti affumicati. Molto facile a bersi, l’alcol si fa sentire sul finale, con ancora una punta di affumicatura.

Rune (12006) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 19, 2012
Taster from the draft menu at Open Baladin. Clear, amber coloured body, naked surface. Intense and delicious smoked aroma, just like my Islay Smokehead whisky. The flavour profile does not follow suit with a rather ordinary malt-fruity taste with peaty notes. Herbal hoppy finish (Roma, 31.03.2012).

sethbreaker (179) - New York, Greater London, USA - MAR 13, 2012
From cask at Mugs Alehouse, Aged in JW Lees Harvest Ale Lagavulin Barrels from 2009. Murky appearance, Very tart on the palate, absolutely flat with no carbonation, smokey qualities, vinous with some booze. Unusual and feels slightly out of sync.

Mortlach (2222) - Rome, ITALY - SEP 18, 2011
15/09/2011 Bir&Fud (tap). Ambrata carica, non molto intensa, con leggera schiuma biancastra sporca, poco persistente. Aroma di malti affumicati, interessante ma un po’ spento, con una timida punta di spezie. In bocca è malto, affumicato, ma manca incredibilmente di complessità, risulta spenta, timida, fin troppo lineare. Corpo medio-basso, carbonazione soft. Abbastanza deludente, da riprovare sicuramente.

gunnar (8664) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2011
Bottle from Domus Birrae, Rome. Pours clear amber with a big creamy white head. Aroma of smoked wood and campfire. Taste is more maltoriented, with the smoke not well incorporated, too sharp and oaky towards the end.
