Notes/Commercial Description:
“Stout” - What does “Stout” mean?

Turns out it’s an historical synonym for 'strong' harking from around the 14th century when Stout Pale Ale was prominent.
Young Doctor Henrys is a collaboration between Young Henrys and Doctors Orders Brewing that not only takes you on a history lesson but also puts our bent and interpretation on historical Stout, with "Stout White Stout" appropriately named “Night Nurse".

Night Nurse looks like a traditional English Summer Ale until you smell it, then have the first sip and attempt to dissect the Young Doctors concoction brewed specifically for Sydney Craft Beer Week.

Brewed in collaboration between Doctor's Orders and Young Henry's. Seems to be owned a little more by Doc, however than by the Young Henry's folks, hence classifying it here. This was styled as a "stout white stout". Brewed in the historical "stout pale ale" style (rather than, say, BrewDog's Abstrakt Blonde Stout), hence calling it an English Strong rather than some sort of stout.

Tried on-tap at Young Henry's during Craft Beer Week.

Pours a hazy bronze-gold colour, with solid weight behind it. Mild, creamy head forms in a bubbly, pocked and slightly inconsistent mess. Solid, sudsy lacing and fine, powdery carbonation.

Aroma is pretty one-dimensional, but powerful at least: solid sweetness, with a pronounced malt base mixed with a little vanilla, and a noticeable, slightly spicy booze.

Spice on the palate as well, with a peppery character forward turning more boozy and slightly astringent towards the finish. Some vanilla comes through to try to help out, but it ends up just feeling sweet, boozy and heavy. At least it disappears off the finish pretty quickly, and doesn't linger: the feel in particular is big while it exists, but ultimately quite short.

Not bad, drinkability-wise. It's chewy and solid, but doesn't fill you up too much or feel all that heavy once you're done. Don't go in expecting a stout and you'll probably have a good time with it.
