How can I increase the ABV of this extract kit and also increase the flavor to balance it?
Add more extract... but then balance kind of goes out the window. You can add more speciatly grains to try and counter, but you should remember that most recipes are based on multiple failures before the final product. Look at recipes that are similar and are imperial stouts is another suggestion.
OP - Nice job and welcome to the addiction!
