Congratulations, and welcome to the world of brewing! It's totally worth it to try some of it on bottling day. And if you thought it had great qualities on bottling day, you're bound to be even more pleased with it 3 or 4 weeks from now.
Just remember that when it comes to certain fuller flavored/fuller bodied styles of beer, it doesn't hurt to let it ferment for at least two weeks. And also know that regardless of how this one tastes a couple weeks in, it'll probably just get better and better with each new week. Patience is definitely a blessing to the brewer.
