Lol yeah the fermentation was done on a potato liberated from the cafeteria, peeled by fingernails, and fermented in a zip lock bag. Clearly he needed to spend some time on gotmead.

I'm assuming if the bad smells continue after a week or so that the batch is just trash.

It's a low ABV and is done with primary fermentation.
Thank you to Ed, Eric, Dan and others that have commented and invited the extra patience. The odor has almost entirely cleared. Once it clears and assuming that the taste is fine, I will be doing some back sweetening.
