Got amazing head retention on my latest stout. (I think)

I am not exactly certain what is considered good for head retention, but this one seems to be my best ever.

I then moved it in front of a clock.

I took sips in between shots. That probably reduced the head, but regardless it still had a thin but noticeable head after 10 minutes.
