I recently kegged a RIS (9.8%ABV) that was oaked with 1.5 oz of Hungarian Oak cubes (medium) and the oak flavor is "smack you in your face".

I'm sure some of that will age out but if that's an indication of what some oak will do you may want to cut back some.
For how long was it oaked? 

Uhh...yes.  That would help.  :)

...4 months.
Good to know :)
