I have limited experience with these, but that experience has been that they are stronger, and bitter if raw of lightly cooked. Is this typical?

I think it depends on what variety they are. I don't remember the details but at the last local garlic festival all the farmers had lots of different varieties like Rocambole and others and they all had different qualities.

Hard-neck is stronger and the oil is very sticky. It lasts much longer than soft-neck. It's my favorite type and it's time to get it in the ground. I usually plant 220 and last year got 195 back. The year before was 100% return - a record around here. As for the different varieties some are spicier than others. Mine has been so mixed together it's like a box of chocolates - I have no clue other than the German red.
