It may just be your freezer, an odor seeping in from another food. What I always did when thawing milk that's more than a few weeks old is taste it. It should taste like sweet milk. Not sour, not bitter, just a little sweet. If it tastes fine, then the milk is okay, especially if the smell isn't sour or anything.

Hope that helps :-)
