Steel cut oats : What do they smell like when they become rancid?

What do steel cut oats smell like when they become rancid?

I just opened a bag with an expiration of 10.16. They have a strong odor, but to me it is pleasant. Sometimes though my sense of smell is off.

Every other brand of oats I have bought have had a barely noticeable scent.

These steel cut oats are cut smaller than other brands which could explain the odor.

Has anyone bought steel cut oats that had a strong scent?
