I'd let it go to 6-8 weeks in the primary and bottle and plan to age it.

Another option is to fill a 3 gallon carboy for a secondary (mine are more like 3.25 gallons) and somehow bottle the rest. It's good to plan around filling the secondary with a little extra to spare when recipe planning if that step is used.

Thanks DSmith.
That's sort of what I was leaning towards. It's in a 5 gallon (really closer to 6) bucket now but since I haven't peeked at it I assume it's still a mostly C02 environment in there. If I were to rack into a 5 gallon carboy...not so much.

My plan was to bottle this when it's ready then age until fall/christmas time...we'll see if I've got the patience

Brewed this today, used 3# smoked cherrywood malt and I was super nervous at mash out at how intensely smokey it was. But nearing the end of the boil now things have calmed down substantially and now I'm really looking forward to see how this turns out. Preboil 7gal 1.065, it's down to 5 gallons with 15 mins left. I added 10oz sugar and 8oz light dme since that's all I had around, and subbed nugget for the 60 min addition

1.096 og, 1.016 fg for 10.5 abv after a week, the yeast took off like a rocket. Gonna get another week in primary, then transfer to a keg to secondary until the winter. Sample was super boozy as expected but the smoked cherrywood seemed nice.

Does the beer end up being bitter at all? It just seems like kind of a lot of IBUs for a barleywine. Would it be ok I i backed it off to around 70 or 80 or would that make it too sweet?

Just brewed this a few weeks ago. Got a little better efficiency than I expected so I dropped the sugar a to hit my OG (ended up with 1.098)

I also used demerera and light brown sugar instead of table. Ended up with 2.75 in fermentor but still pitched two nottingham packets. Hope I didn't over pitch too much. Primary ferment is over but I haven't pulled a sample. Just gonna wait til I transfer it to pull a sample.

Tasted a sample recently and enjoyed it. A lot of the smokiness I was worried about has toned down quite a bit, thankfully. It's still sitting "secondary" in the keg, once some room in the kegerator opens up i'll carb it up then bottle it.
