Bottle pour at Woodshop 8 held at The Hermosillo in Los Angeles, CA.
Thanks to John11486 for sharing this one.
Pours a hazy orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, toffee, cherry, and strong alcohol aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel and cherry flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of woody bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a solid cherry presence but this one is quite boozy all around.

Bottle shared by eorwar at DLD. Served in a DLD mini snifter.
A: Pours a hazy brown color with some orange highlights. A khaki head forms on the pour and recedes to a thin head.
S: Big barrel character with some oak, vanilla and big sweet malts. Some bourbon character with a light hop backing. Light fruity cherries as well.
T: Sweet malt base with a piney hop character. Oak,bourbon and sweet vanilla with a caramel and burnt sugar aspect. Fresh cherries on the back end.
M: Medium bodied with a chewy texture. Medium carbonation with a sweet and fruity texture.
O: I enjoy the regular BA behemoth a lot more than this, but this was still really good. The cherries were there and it was a nice touch.

On-tap in the brewpub on DLD '11.
A: Cloudy red-brown body with a ring of frothy off-white head. Looks big.
S: Big, sweet, slightly plastic-y. Bourbon, vanilla, and caramel all show up, as well as some fruity booze. Nice, but where are the cherries?
T: Huge, sweet, and crazy. Caramel, toffee, cherry (finally!), oak, bourbon, and vanilla. The cherry really asserts itself nicely, with plenty of dry tartness complementing the big barleywine sweetness. Some grassy hops bitterness shows up, too. Wow, that's complex and amazing.
M: Fluffy. The carbonation really explodes, filling my mouth with lively effervescence. Interesting.
O: Terrific BA Barleywine. The cherries really provided a thrilling touch of complexity, and all the huge sweetness and hoppiness of the base beer was just enhanced by the bourbon and oak. I was really surprised to see that this was rated a B+ overall, as I thought I was kind of hard on it in everything but taste, and still gave it an A-. Huh.
Serving type: on-tap
