    Anyone tell me when if and when this was done? Was it bottled? 750s, bombers, growlers, gold plated unicorn horns? Any info would be most appreciated.

    If I'm not mistaken they did a release about 3-6 months ago. 750s and around 564 bottles.

    Cognac Moloko and Conquistador de Muerte were bottled back around September. 750s at $35 each. Don't recall if they did a Bourbon version in bottles, but I don't believe so.
  4. No bourbon...yet.

    Anyone had cognac moloko that can let me know what they thought about it? I got a bottle (385) in a trade during boltcutter release and have yet to indulge. Don't know if I want to trade with it or drink, any thoughts??

    Do you like barrel aged stouts? Then I suggest you drink it and form your own opinion of it. Personally I thought it was excellent.

    If you don't like barrel aged stouts, then I'm a bit perplexed as to why you put in the effort to trade for it in the first place.

    Off topic but I'm with you, why would someone trade for something and then trade away for something different. People are playing lets make a deal trying to land a blaeber starting with a sixer of zombie dust. I met some guy I traded with at an event and I asked if he liked the beer (he asked for a trade because I was talking about the beer in a thread, And traded it for off the shelf beer to cover $), he said he didn't try it and traded it for a CBS. Im a peaceful man and all I wanted to so was slap him.

    Wow I see the dick train has just rolled into town... The only reason I got this beer to begin with is because I had a trade worked out with someone and last minute he wanted to know if he could get some KBS. I DO like BA stouts, not ever hearing of this one in particular I agreed to part with some of my KBS, which the other trader had never had a bottle. I personally had asked him if he had a darklord from any year he could trade instead, but he didn't. This is why I posed my question to begin with, how is this beer drinking???? I would personally have liked to trade for a darklord to begin with, so if the opinion of fellow ba's is that this beer is an underachiever, then I would use that information to possibly acquire something else or bring to a tasting. Thank you for no constructive information what so ever by the way.

    Wasn't Conquistador de Muerte in Bourbon Barrels? I think yes, with chilies. Haven't drank mine yet.

    I did drink the Cognac Moloko and was incredible... got me wasted beyond belief, I think it had to be upwards of 12%....

    Jazzed about BA Topless Wytch... was told it's a bit hot right now, and to wait on it a bit, also estimated around 12%. Bourbon barrels as well, forgot to ask about what bourbon....

    Wasn't trying to be a dick, just giving you my thoughts, but since you asked for some constructive information, I suggest you read some reviews:

    http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/26/85075

    If the reviews sound pleasing to you, then drink the beer. If not, go ahead and trade it. I'm frankly quite shocked that you were able to find someone to throw you a Cognac Moloko instead of a Dark Lord. IIRC, the Cognac Moloko really exploded on the trading block when first released. Unless of course you meant Barrel Aged Dark Lord. In which case I'm far less surprised.

    I opened my bottle of cognac Moloko a couple months ago. I wouldn't recommend holding onto it (meaning drink it now if you are going to). Very similar to the Cognac DL, unlike the bourbon versions, they are well balanced and not hot at all fresh. So no need to age. I enjoyed it quite a bit. The Conquistador was a bit disappointing as it wasn't as spicy (chili) as previous draft versions I've had. So I would not age that either, for anyone who cares (unlike DL De Muerte which is still damn spicy over a year later.
  14. Id like to trade for it. The regular Moloko is my favorite stout.
  15. mbockstruck30

    mbockstruck30 Savant (325) Illinois Dec 31, 2010

    yes, Conquistador was bourbon, I just meant they didn't have a straight bourbon BA version.

    Dick train happens to be the name of my experimental jazz trio. We never have had a chance to play Grand Rapids as the bass player is in another band Dutch Rudder, who has been banned from playing within the city limits for obvious reasons.


    Wait, what were we talking about? Oh, yea. Markinthecar, least helpful person on BA.

    IIRC, the september bottling of conquistador de muerte was aged in bourbon barrels, not port like the original release was. but i don't know with 100% certainty.
  23. Yeah, CdM is Bourbon barrel-aged plus ancho (?) chiles. There has been no bottling of this beer

    I haven't cracked my Conquistador, either. I was really jazzed about BA Topless Wytch as well and headed up to the brewpub to get a bottle as soon as I got the tweet. I really dig the base beer, and due to MLK day I had a day off. I've picked up several of the BA releases, especially the Moloko variations, however there have been several I've passed on including Murda'd Out Stout, but BA Topless Wytch was one I was definitely going to purchase.
  25. chanokokoro

    chanokokoro Advocate (590) Illinois Jan 31, 2012

    Agreed and my guess it won't show up (if ever) until Moloko shows up next year. My guess, is we'll see a BA Behemoth variation next around the same time Behemoth shows up in bombers this year.

    Conquistador de Muerte Porto. I enjoyed that very much despite the iffy reviews.. That was just one time. They have brewed De Muerte a few times, only bottled once. All bourbon.

    Ancho and guajillo, I believe.
  27. mbockstruck30

    Murda'd Out is the one you defiinitely should not have passed on.

    $50 is steep for a bottle of beer, so I don't blame anyone for passing. But of all of their BA releases thus far (excluding DL of course), Murda'd Out is one of the best.
  32. CityofBals

    CityofBals Initiate (0) Illinois Sep 12, 2012

    There's also a variant on CdMP called Ronaldo (was at FOBAB). It's CDMP with sweet and tart cherries, and it was quite good.

    Also, Murda'd is quite delicious, and is arguably (would be 100%, but $50 is a lot) better than any of the other Tuesday releases.
  33. JulianC

    JulianC Savant (335) Illinois Mar 9, 2012

    Feedback on Murda I've heard has been home run out of the park... It was tough to drop 50 bones though I agree. Glad I did it.
  34. Variants of Moloko, I think you mean.. or meant to convey.

    Moloko
    Variants:
    Bourbon Moloko
    Bourbon Moloko w/ Peppers (CdM)
    Port Moloko w/ Peppers (CdMP)
    Port Moloko w/ Cherries (Ronaldo)
    Cognac Moloko

    I was just saying that there was an even more obscure FFF beer than CdMP, Ronaldo, and that it was at FOBAB (and quite delicious.) The other variants were (besides Ronaldo) all discussed before I posted. But yes, that is a complete list of the Moloko treatments.
  36. lurchingbeast

    lurchingbeast Initiate (0) Illinois Feb 19, 2009

    Ronaldo....Mmmmmmm.....terrible
  37. Right. I knew what you were saying. And knew you knew what you were saying. Just wanted to clarify.

    I think Ronaldo and CdMP are about equal in obscurity. Both first debuted at GTMW 2011 (At Argus the night before for Ronaldo - and then both again at the festival the next day).. Porto was bottled, I don't think Ronaldo was. But Ronaldo appeared at FoBAB and I feel like it was at another event at some point.

    I actually like Ronaldo a lot too. Perhaps someone else remembers if Ronaldo was ever bottled? Or which fests either appeared at??

  38. I can't remember Ronaldo ever being bottled but, as far as fest are concerned they had Ronaldo and CdMP at Great Taste of the Midwest 2011 (both) and 2012 (Ronaldo). I also Ronaldo tap at FFF in 2011 or 2012 (can't quite remember).
