Bottle drank side by side with Cognac Imperial Sweet Stout from CCB in a head to head smackdown. Big thanks to Kyle for a beer that eluded me for quite some time.

Dark though certainly lighter in color than the ISS. Some brown highlights along the edges and some whisps along the surface. While not as menacing looking as its counterpart, it looks more appealing in the glass to my eye.

Much more roast on the nose with a hint of rubber glove or solvent that's strangely not unappealing. Barrel lays a light blanket atop.

As in the nose, the taste displays a good deal of roast and medium bodied coffee. It's lighter and more crisp overall and the Cognac barrel adds as very pleasant element to a base beer which I don't enjoy all that much.

The Cognac Moloko is a bit more accessible and less fatiguing on the palate than the ISS and while I don't think it displays nearly as much complexity as the ISS either, I found myself reaching for it more frequently. I'm not sure that makes it a better or worse beer, but it's certainly an improvement on the base and a great experience to have drank these beers side by side.

Bottle #334/564 blind side by side with Cognac sweet stout from CCB

A: Pitch black with an amazingly beautiful khaki head.

S: Roasty, milk chocolate, hint of caramel and then my new friend Cognac

T: Very Moloko(could tell blind) the good part is like the base beer. A very good sweet stout and adding the Cognac is brilliant! Very good beer but I wish it had a little more sweetness to it honestly, but the barrel was very good, not over powering at all.

M: Coating as expected but doesnt linger like I thought it might. No alcohol burn at all.

O: I really enjoyed this beer and would not shy away form trying it again if given the chance! But trading for it is tough!

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle # 219 of 564.

Appearance - Black. Small khaki head. Medium collar.

Smell - Super strong cognac. Fruity and boozy. Kinda smells like a brandy, which makes sense.

Taste - Chocolate behind a hefty fruity character. Oak. Vanilla. Sweet brandy flavor. I get none of the lactose.

Mouthfeel - Medium body, not too boozy. Strong barrel though.

Overall - I'm glad I can't taste the lactose. Really intense barrel.

Bottle pour at Woodshop 8 held at The Hermosillo in Los Angeles, CA.

Thanks to AndresR for sharing this one.

Bottle # 79/564.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, cognac, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa and cognac flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that has a slightly better cognac presence in the aroma in my opinion.
