Makes sense. I am usually more concerned with balancing malt and hops versus alcohol. I rarely brew anything higher than 5.5% so I have limited experience.
Sounds like since it finished reasonably dry for that OG, the alcohol is more apparent than if it had a higher FG. To correct it, I would need a higher OG and a higher FG if I wanted the same ABV?
According to my notes, fermentation stayed in the mid 60s.
