Where are you looking for it?

If you are looking in the cookies.txt file, you will not see the session ID
cookie, or any other cookie that has a setMaxAge(-1) value.  This value tells
the browser that the cookie wll be discarded when the browser is closed, so the
browsers don't waste the time to write them out to disk -- they are left in
memory only.  But they are still set and they still work.
