Roomano Extra Aged Gouda

$19.99/Lb


Roomano is similar to an aged Gouda, but is technically from the cheese family 'Proosdy'. These have lower butterfat than the required 48% for Gouda (this one has 45%) and their edges are noticeably sharper. This cheese defines the term 'flavor-dense.' Made of pasteurized cow's milk and aged up to 4 years, Roomano has an intense flavor of sweet-salty butterscotch. The granite paste is peppered with white flecks - calcium lactate crystals that form during extended aging - lending an assertive crunch. You'll need a heavy knife (and perhaps some protective goggles) to breach this rewarding fortress of cheese, and a nice brown ale to wash it down.
