As strong as Brännvinsost may sound, it is surprisingly mild. Under the layer of midnight black wax, there is a sunny yellow cheese, firm with tiny curd holes and a texture reminiscent of aged Cheddar. Upon first taste, the cheese is mellow and buttery. Follow through to the finish for a touch of sharpness from the Aquavit. Only a small quantity of liquor is injected, but it makes a huge difference in the cheese's flavor.
