A Swedish cheese made from whey. The whey is cooked until it is reduced to a mass of caramelized milk sugars, and then poured into block-shaped molds to set. This dark fudge-like cheese has a caramel flavor and a bitter aftertaste. Danish version = myseost; Norwegian = brunost. In America this cheese is sold under the name gjetost which itself is a newer spelling of geitost.
