Still more info? If you fermented it with cyanide it would not be safe to drink.
Recipe? Volumes? Amount of yeast? Age of batch? Gravities?

If it's young, as in less than 5 months old, then it will taste and smell like anus.

Well to be honest, that's how most apple cider is made.

It would still be nice to get more info, like volumes of the ingredients and age of the batch. If you used 1 gallon of apple juice and 10 lbs of sugar, you could potentially have 50% alcohol if the yeast could handle it. If its only a week old, it will taste like anus and smell like sulphur.

Bread yeast is usually only capable to ferment up to 8%-10%. But either way, it would be safe to drink.

Or maybe he lied about his age and he's really only 14 years old, and stole the ingredients from his mother and is hiding it in the closet so him and his buddies can have a party.
