Also... Yes I tasted the beer at bottling (no priming sugar) and it did seem sweet.

If it was sweet prior to bottling, short of the non fermentable sugars that may have come from the steeped grains, it sounds to me like it wasn't done fermenting. The sweet taste and higher final gravity points that direction.

If that's the case assuming they don't end up as bottle bombs it will eventually ferment out all the sugar.

Looks like you racked before fermentation was complete. Removing the beer from the yeast stalled the fermentation.
Next brew wait until the krausen has fallen and the beer looks clear. This will take at least three weeks. Some brews longer.
Your hydrometer will tell you when fermentation is complete. After hydrometer readings are stable the yeast will continue working to clean up natural off flavors of fermentation.
More patience.

Recipe looks ok. Would recommend 2-3 weeks in the primary and making a yeast starter next time.

I agree with Flars...this baby looks like it was still fermenting...

Full volume boil well help. Start ferm temp low may help. Pitch more yeast. Leave in primary 3 weeks. Leave in bottle at least 3 weeks.
