I have found that my stouts don't develop as nice a head during the pour as my pale ales do, but I just do as mentioned before and get a little rough with them, seems like stouts get off on that for some reason.

Head is created by knocking CO2 out of solution during the pour. If you want less, cascade down the side of the glass. If you want more, drop the glass down at the last 1/4 of the pour so the beer is splashing into the center. When you play with your line length to dial in how much head you get, you're screwed when you want a beer with slightly higher carbonation.
