For me, if it was repulsive,  like moldy dust, poo, rat urine, vinegar etc, it's probably not ever going to be good.

Is rat urine distinctive from urine in general?
Of course. Any beer judge worth their salt can readily detect various rodent urines. They also can tell the difference betweem mouse taint and the rest of the mouse.

it's a bit piquant with a touch of gooseberry. very refreshing with fresh chevre.  ;D

That was beautiful!

UPDATE - so pulled out the cherries and the cocoa nips, it smells like chocolate and a little leather...not rat urine  ;Dso, I think I am going to ride this one out for a couple months.  We will see what we get...
