The other thing to understand, is that with a higher gravity beer, S-04 will perform very well when over pitched.
I don't have the exact volume that we used on the Barleywine, but it was certainly close to 3 quarts of slurry or more, for a 5 gallon brew.
There was no peach, apricot, apple, or other fruity flavors with this. Pretty clean, overall. An excellent ale yeast.
The plan is to use this yeast in an upcoming Stout.
I think this yeast would work well for most any type of ale.
