Default Adding Bourbon to Chocolate Stout - How much?

I know it's a matter of preference, but for those of you that have added bourbon at bottling, how much to a 5 gal batch was deemed acceptable before it got out of hand on taste?

16 oz added.
Tastes AMAZING after barely a week in the bottle. Can't wait to taste it in a month!
