I would definitely say it is Butterty-popcorn!  I actually left a sample on the counter, came back from work and the aroma/taste was almost gone. I'm not sure the science behind that, but it gives me hope that this thing actually taste pretty good...  Thanks for the input I will keep it in the chamber for a bit longer..
Cheers from Austin, Tejas!

I'd bet a 12-pack that it's diacetyl.

I think if you were to warm the sample up a bit you would start smelling it again.

No worries!  It's a classic bit.  Hermetically sealed in a #2 mayonnaise jar on Funk and Wagnell's front porch...

Maybe, maybe not.  Yeast eats diacetyl.  Yeast eats faster at higher temperatures.  Therefore, yeast eats diacetyl faster at higher temperatures. ;)

Not a very good one, but a modest attempt.
