Earlier today, Purple Door Ice Cream announced the release of a new flavor, Malort. Purple Door has mixed booze into their extraordinary frozen dairy before with popular flavors like Whiskey, Wisconsin Old Fashioned and Beer and Pretzels.

Malort, which has been made in Chicago since 1930, is a controversial tasting spirit has an incredibly bitter taste and – jokingly and not jokingly – has been described as having notes of gasoline, poison, earwax, rotten grapefruit and decaying flesh in threads on Reddit.
