+1 to this. I, for example, just sipped off a hydro sample of my most recent brew. It is at 7.3% and tasted thin, yeasty, and bitter beyond all recognition. After I chilled the sample, and a LOT of yeast fell out of suspension and it was delicious. Moral of the story is: carb it up, chill it, and of course relax don't worry enjoy etc.
