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.

Dimmig mörkorange öl med ett lättare smutsvitt skum. Doften är kryddig och maltig med inslag av karamell. Kryddorna träder fram lite ytterligare i smaken, vilket inte bara är bra.

The_Osprey (8681) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2015
Cask, gravity dispense, at Pig’s Ear 2015. As ’Troll Shangrila’. Amber orange, still, small bubbly tan head. Aroma is cola ice lolly, rum and coke, varnish, brandy, alcohol, blue icepops from my childhood. Body is medium, oily, smooth. Taste is rum and coke, stewed fruits, alcohol with a slightly bitter finish. Looks like Paul and I both picked up the rum n coke vibe. Can’t say I picked up any individual spices in particular, but maybe they made me think of spiced rum.

Scopey (15471) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2015
Cask gravity at Pig’s Ear 2015. It pours clear deep red with pretty much no head. The nose is soft, sweet, juicy, faruit cake, varnish, cola ice lolly, spice and tangy dried fruits. The taste is slick, rich, bitter-sweet, spicy, dark fruits, fruit cake, cola ice lolly, and some alcohol warmth with a slick finish. Very reminiscent of Rum & Coke in my opinion! Medium body, low carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Weird, but overall not bad.

Cask at Pigs Ear 2015, day 1 - London. Pours clear golden-red with a light, foamy head. The nose has faint plastic, berries, bread. Medium sweet flavor, very spicy, with sugary wheat and light butter. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Finishes with sugary wheat and berries. So so.

Theydon_Bois (20460) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2015
Gravity at Pigs Ear ’15, 01/12/15. Rich amber orange with little in the way of a head. Nose is caramel, floral notes, light spice, bitter fruit. Taste comprises herbal notes, peppercorns, tangy fruit, aniseed. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close. Average stuff ... delivers little on the ABV offered.

Tasted during Nepenthia. Amber brown color. Thin white head. No lace sticks. Hazy body, with bits of particles inside. Caramel, some fig, pear. Nuts. Some spice, something like cinnamon. Medium-plus body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Light slick. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. Pretty pleasant overall.
