Aeresis Black Indian Pepper Ale is a unique dark beer flavoured with indian pepper, coriander and orange peel. Opening the bottle you are hit with aromas of roasted coffee, liquorice and caramel. It has a spicy, malty taste with a sweet fruity hit that gives way to a lingering bitter finish. The coffee and liquorice are also present on the palate. The overall effect is a sublime, most quaffable beer.
As I've got older my tastes have changed, and as Kiedis confesses on this track , dark necessities are now very much part of my design too! Like Aeresis, Dark Necessities is intriguing. A track with layered piano and synthesisers complimenting Flea's trademark funk-pop bass line. Over the years Red Hot Chili Peppers have given us numerous timeless classics. I have no doubt that Dark Necessities will join this list and feature on any future greatest hits albums, and with Aeresis Elav have followed suit by brewing a cracking beer that I can see myself returning to time after time.
