Brick cheese

Brick cheese is a semi-hard, cow's milk cheese originating in the Wisconsin. The cheese has a number of small and irregular holes and an open texture. The flavor is a mixture of sweet, spicy and nutty. As it ripens, it becomes almost as strong as limburger. The name brick cheese is said to have come from the fact that bricks were once used to weight the curd and press out the whey.
