I plan to go over and get a hydrometer reading tomorrow and taste the sample. I don't mind bitter/boldness in my beer but we will see what he says. If it is too bitter I think these are options.
1. Try adding coconut rum and sorta do a spin off of BigKahuna's Pirate Ale
2. Mixing it with another blander brew like res said.
3. Making it into a highly hopped stout with maybe cocoa powder and Vanilla bean. Maybe oak chips?
or some other stout variant.
