Under no circumstances attempt to drink it. This is a food safety issue. Contact me immediately and I will send round one of our highly trained specialists who will dispose of it in the safe and proper manner.

It is surprising how long beer keeps for; well past sell-by date for a quality beer or a decent home-made.
Move it slowly and carefully, and let it stand for a day or two if you cannot keep it upright when moving. Hold it firmly on a solid surface when opening and gently pour into a large glass up against the light to ensure that any sediment is left in the bottle. If it tastes all right then drink it.

Still got a bottle in the cupboard - didn't realise it was likely to explode!

The bottle won't spontaneously explode. What occasionally causes a bottle to explode is the build-up of pressure caused by CO2 given off by fementable matter in the liquid. If it's knocked clumsilly when at high pressure, or exposed to excessive heat, it may explode. A bottle of Ouze Booze, if it had any such fermentable matter to start with, won't still have any after 12 or so years in bottle although it may have sediment. After a few years in bottle the pressure in any case decreases as the crown cap is not 100% air tight and the pressure gradually escapes.

Like Kendo Caster mine exploded years ago, but the explosion came from my rear end.

I have just sold 48 halfpint bottles of silver jubilee, wedding of charles and diana and other varied commemorative ales all different breweries, how ever I retain an enigma in my cupboard, a bottle of 1917 taylors port with a label round its neck and a cork.
the label has one word on it "decanted" obviously its been rebottled and the cork is the original, the enigma? simple what would be a suitable bottle to have at hand so that if on opening the taylors is old vinegar, I have a suitable something at hand as a consolation prize. preferably something under a £100
