  1. Pour Oktoberfest (or pumpkin ale) into pint glass (it should fill the glass to just above the halfway point).

  2. Position the head of a spoon over the glass facing downward, touching the foam head. Carefully pour the stout so that it runs slowly over the back of the spoon and into the glass. Serve.

In step 1, pour the Oktoberfest or pumpkin ale slightly quicker than usual to create a thicker head, which will encourage the stout to float on top more easily. Remember, even a slight variation in the height of the head or the speed at which the stout is poured can affect your results. Practice before guests arrive if you want to put your best face forward!
