Were your oak cubes soaked in liquor prior to adding?
I soaked ~1.75 ounces of "American medium-plus toast" in rye whiskey for about four days, then put them into a carboy and siphoned 3 gallons of rye porter on top of it. I lost track of how long they were there -- that's part of my problem -- but I think it was ~6 weeks.
I don't remember how much whiskey I used, but would guess it was about a quarter of liter.
