This is one lacerative muther of an ale...taken to a whole new level by aging in Red Wine Oak Barrels in extremely limited quantities. It is unequivocally certain that your feeble palate is grossly inadequate and thus undeserving of this liquid glory...and those around you would have little desire to listen to your resultant whimpering. A huge malt bill and a belligerent hoppiness make this heavy ale one that will be appreciated by only a few, and that's just fine with us. We didn't brew this mordant dark amber monster to please anyone other than ourselves. If you think you are truly worthy, then crack open a bottle, drink deeply, and bask in all its trenchant glory - but if you are befuddled by the polysyllabic lexicon of the Bastard, if your complacency and contented acquiescence to the soulless mendacity of national marking pap causes you the least bit of hesitation, back away slowly and go buy something you saw advertised on TV.
