So anyways i used a blonde ale kit and added a couple pounds of Choco malt extract and also added 4 pounds of honey. ANd after about a month in bottles its nicely carbed up but still too forward with the sweetness in the alcohol. It is about 8% abv. Do yall think it will improve much with age or is this one as good as its going to get?

It'll age 1 day at a time. Question really is, how many days can you wait?

Beers with this much alcohol generally benefit from a longer age. I'd recommend opening one every month, starting with three months out. I'd guess it'd peek around 6 (depending on storage conditions) but you never know.
