Thanks Frank! Split with a few great BAs.
This is just not the right base beer I think. Dark brown foam with a ring for head. Nutty aroma with cognac/brandy making through after some intense attempts. Sweet, roasty and a fruity base somewhere. Medium body, medium feel. Can't think of anything offensive about this beer, frankly; but can't think of a great reason to put it in a waxed bottle and sell it for insane prices either.

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.

Big thanks goes out to cmrillo for sharing this one during the One Year Anniversary of My Wreck Tasting! Bottle #524 of 564! Served from bottle into a Crooked Stave ‘Crooked Line’ tulip. Poured pitch black with a half finger tan head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, apple, sweet alcohol, wood, fruit, and spice. The flavor was of sweet malt, wood, sweet alcohol, fruit, spice, and apple. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a fairly good brew. The barrel definitely added a very nice level of complexity to this one. However, it did cover up a lot of the base brew if I am honest. This hurt its score slightly if I’m honest, but this was still a solid brew. Definitely worth your time if you get the chance to try it.

Bottle shared by Rillo at the Charlotte Tasting 2012. Thanks Rillo!
Cognac Kilometer looks like the regular, thick and viscous dark chocolate brown with a one finger dark beige head. The nose definitely has plenty of Cognac character. It is vinous and has plenty of grape character yet still has plenty of the roasted malt and chocolate that I love in the regular Moloko. There are traces of Cognac all over this beer. As always Moloko does well in a barrel. The Cognac is different but I do prefer the Bourbon barrel version. Good beer though.
