Default Bottle Conditioning a Big Winter Warmer

Any input would be fantastic. Made a Winter Warmer this last fall that at Christmas had been in the bottle for four weeks and had no carbonation. Now it's going on 7 weeks and has very little carbonation. Is this not near enough time?, will it eventually carb? It's apx 10.5%. Should this big of a beer just be left alone and rest for months??, maybe even till next Christmas ??

Bigger beers do tend to take longer to carb up. I'd give it a couple more months before I tried another one...
