On another related note, I have found some bacteria strains to give a hint if compost/worm aroma. It depends on other factors for how intrusive it is. Typically I get that in berliner weisse and other beers with lactobacillus, as opposed to having pedio.
Thanks for that info! I think it's the "musk" that I'm the most unsure of. I've also seen it described as "sweaty horse blanket." These don't sound too appealing, but I'm definitely curious and intrigued. Although, I do really enjoy a nice pungent cheese.

In small doses they are pleasing to the palate, but mostly because they give a round character. Sort of like cumin. It's a very earthy and musky tasting spice but can add a lot to a dish like chili or Indian food.
