My unhopped Domesday Ale, 50% home malted oats, OG 1096, FG 1032, brewed
October 98 and bottled  without priming February 99 remains unsour.  Likely
it's the alcohol.

It is awfully sweet, though.  Some sourness would be welcome.  Reminds me a
bit of Sam Adams Triple Bock.  Kind of like alcoholic prune juice.  Well,
better than that.  I'm hoping it will age like a fortified wine - sherry or
port, and gain some complexity.
