Default Cracked my first bottle of my first home brew batch

Looks like an oatmeal stout, smells like an oatmeal stout, tastes like an oatmeal stout. Wow this hobby is fun.

How do you get it to stay in a sideways glass?

Thick head I'd say. Could be a nose buster though.

Sideways cell phone pick lol. The second glass of the bomber didn't have as much head probably how I poured it the first time. Coke glass is all I had handy.

I found some of those glasses at dollar tree with the handle on them. Sure looks like stout alright.

Congratulations!
Reminded me of one of the nicest compliments I got from a friend's father (who was not a beer enthusiast), "it tastes like beer".
Enjoy your new hobby.

It really is the "shnizz" to pop open that first bottle...hear the "ssshhhh"...pour it into a glass...appreciate the head...and FINALLY TASTE your very first homebrew made by your own hands! Welcome to the addiction we kindly call "brewing!"
