You’re fine! Aged beef takes on an “earthy” or “nutty” smell. Can’t say I call it sweet, but you are worrying for NO reason! BTW being a bone in then that means the aging is slower, since the meat closer to the bone is not aging as fast. Think of it this way – aging meat is a matter of reducing the tasteless water in the cell structure. How long do you plan to age it?
