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.

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

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.

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

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

Bottle. Perhaps one of the most unique beers I’ve 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)

Silvan7 (1273) - Samarate, ITALY - SEP 23, 2013
On tap @ slowfood Cheese, BRA. profumo intrigante, tra il dolce e lo speziato. Si avverte bene una dolcezza fruttata, come di mela candita c’è del caramello e sicuramente dell’anice e dello zenzero. Colore ambrato carico con schiuma beige scarico, poco persistente anche se abbastanza fine. Il gusto è altrrettanto dolciastro, ma si avvertono molto di più le spezie, che solleticano la lingua in vario modo. il gusto è intenso persistente,piacevolente corposa, rimane calda alcolica a lungo sulla lingua, pochissimo luppolata, ma con luppoli arumati...

[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.

Hazy amber; good off-white head. Nose with ginger, exotic spices, as African manioc root. Sweet-sour. Again very exotic taste, as entering a Chinese toko. Dried fish, dried mango, lots of ginger. God knows what else. Caramelised malts. A bit burning, slick, only medium bodied. Exotic it is. But I had it too warm by half.
