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.

Looks good, aroma is thick, lots of sugar. A lot of molasses-type flavors. The spices dont seem to work in this - dont get the anise. Mostly seems stringy. And this is way overpriced.

Bottle. Perhaps one of the most unique beers Ive ever tried. Dark brown with barley a whisper of a head, the beer exudes a distinctly Asian aroma. LIke Indian food in a glass, the bold choice of spices in this make it a true one-of-a-kind adventure. (#3850, 2/20/2010)

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 8, 2010
(Sample Date: 8/16/2009 Source:Other) Spicy dark fruit nose. Almost a Belgian yeast character. Light cloudy amber brown. Flavor of oak with dark fruits and a sherry like taste. Dry vinous finish. Very tasty.

thedm (6044) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 12, 2009
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a hazy with floating yeast chunks brown colored body. The aroma was spicy and herb. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The good flavor contained notes of somewhat subdued spices and brown malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2009
Pours a dark cloudy ruby/ chestnut brown color with a thick, foamy tan head. Spicy peppery aroma with lots of dark fruit, candi sugar and nut. Very spicy and quite different tasting. Very peppery wirth dark fruit notes as well as some sweet candi sugar and a slightly bitter hop finish that is quite dry. Similar to an Xmas ale with an odd aftertaste.

Ambrat di colore con discreta e persistente schiuma questa piemontese...aroma dolce e speziato di zenzero,forse un p acido.In bocca altrettanto speziata con richiami forse di the orientali.Ben bilanciata.Discreta.

BrotherGrendel (787) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 22, 2009
On tap at OBriens, ruby orange with no head, fairly spiced and thick malt aroma, taste is like a sweet, malty, rich saison, medium-bodied with low carb and some warming heat, an interesting variant that suffers from lack of balance.
