I'm not one to say "it's normal, it'll go away". I'm the one who will say that rhino farts in anything except a cider with montrachet yeast (and those are mild) is a sign of stressed yeast.

I'd definitely rack, and add some nutrients and hope it helps. H2S is not a good sign, especially after the first few early days of fermentation.

If it's Rhinofarts, they usually come an go withing a couple days...and that's in the initial few days of fermentation. If it hasn't gone away it's probably stressed yeast or needed nutrients. Rhinofarts act like normal farts, they fade away.

I'm thinking there's not much else to do at this point but splash rack the heck out of it and hope for the best. Rack it to another vessel and let is splash on the sides...in the bottom...fling the hose around in the air. If its been 4 months and still smells like sulfur...that's not good. I wouldn't worry about oxidizing it at this point..see if you can salvage something to drink quickly. If splashing does work...pitch it and start new. Or hold your nose and drink till the smell doesn't matter
