Either there is no more fermentation going because the yeast has reached it's limit, there is no sugar left, or you have a stuck fermentation. The recipie would help.

If it isn't sweet and it's stopped bubbling then fermentation is complete. There's nothing wrong with it. The strong aftertaste is probably due to it being young. Bottle or keg it, let it age a month or so, then give it another try.
