Default Carb question

I brewed a Chimay Grand Reserve clone (9% ABV). It has been in the bottles for 3 weeks. It has a wonderful taste, however it seems very under carbed. My question is whether it takes longer to carb a high ABV brew. I have made 4 previous brews and after 3 weeks they were carbed up nicely. Just wondering if i need to wait longer, or try something else.

Wait longer. Sometimes stronger beer can take longer. What temperature are the bottles sitting at?

where is Revyy and the chart?
Yep bigger beers ( higher ABV) take longer according to everything I have been told. I have a barleywine that has been bottled for a few months that just now is getting there. I think it will be popular at my convention next weekend.
