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!"
