It's good for the bones

Milk Stout - 4.5%
Bristol has a long tradition of brewing and keeping that tradition alive is the Bristol Beer Factory.  They produce small batches of ales by hand.

What I picked up was a bottle of Milk Stout.  The Milk Stout is so called because it uses a sugar derived from milk, lactose.  Now I have to be careful with the quantities of that I intake lest is lead to me getting rid of it far faster than the human bowel is designed to.

What it actually produces is a nice middle of the road stout that I would be hard pressed to differentiate from another.  Not unpleasant, far from it, merely not as special as others.
