What does cookie opt-out mean in the context of the EU Cookie Law?

The site of Cookie Consent tells me that in Germany, I need to offer an opt-out on cookies.

That, however, is impossible, as any decision made by the visitor has to be recorded in a cookie or it's lost on the next request.

So what does this mean? Is Cookie Consent wrong about the requirement, is the requirement inherently nonsensical or did I overlook something here?
