Wychwood is a brewery that rarely disappoints and Diceman is no exception.
It's a jet black stout with a thick, tight, beige head that is surprisingly robust. The aroma is a little uninspiring; malt and treacle on a strong metallic base, however, the ale redeems itself in the taste test. It is a lovely stout with notes of treacle, malt, dark fruit, and liquorice followed by a hint of chocolate to give a bittersweet chocolate finish.
It has a medium body and it's well carbonated with hard but not harsh bubbles that somehow manage to give a silky smooth mouthfeel.
Diceman is like a liquorice toffee in a glass and I loved it. It's just a shame it lost a few points in the aroma as it deserves a higher score than 3.75/5. It's the taste that counts so Ale Be Seeing You again!
