black truffle honey = oily burnt tire smell?

Recently received a jar of accacia honey with black truffles. Aroma of oily burnt tires filled the kitchen when opened, undeterred, tasted it and stung my tongue.
Previous experience not like this at all, slightly sweet earthy smell and taste. Would love to know which one was the aberration.

Can this type of honey go bad? What is it supposed to smell and taste like?
