BTW, I just brewed your Black Pearl Porter recipe on Saturday and it went great! I can't wait to drink it, thanks for putting that up here.
Besides adding specialty grains like honey, a sure fire way to build up a lot of body is to just go with a large (very large) grain bill. You'll get a big beer with lots fo body, but the fermentables will be so high that the ABV will be very high and require a lot of conditioning time for the alcohol "warmth" to tame down.

Big IPA's, RIS's and the like often have a hot alcohol flavor when they're young.

Another keg of "Tits Up" just went on line in the chiller so it's time to get another IPA in the pipeline.

I think it's time for a repeat of this one.

Somehow the impact of his compliment carries a new meaning.

Sadly, and at the same time, awesomely, I think this has eclipsed Lagunitas IPA as my favorite IPA.

There's just something about the aroma of this beer, and the malt character just stands up to the hoppiness so well.
