An update on this alt. It's been almost 2 weeks since my last taste. The sulfur is almost gone and the sweetness is not nearly as aggressive. Really soft mouthfeel with a dry finish.

Not all that clear but that has never been my chief complaint.

I think I could get into drinking this.

Any chance that bringing it to room temp and pitching a little dry yeast could bring things back to life to knock down the sweetness?
Yes, that's exactly how you'd do a sulfur purge.
