9 month old Guinness... still good for cooking?

I have a couple of bottles of Guinness that were bought around the holidays last year... so from the point of purchase to now are about 8-9 months old. I'm wondering if these would still be passable either for drinking or, if not, for cooking? Is there any risk of getting sick from old beer or is it just that the taste will go bad?

Unless its been frozen or under extreme heat conditions, it should still be fine. I would pour it in a glass, drink it, then decide....

It should be fine. The carbonation may be affected.

I wouldn't be afraid to use them in a batch of pancakes or waffles. That's how "mature" gets used here if there is a question. I certainly don't think it's toxic, maybe not so bubbly.

I wouldn't chance it. Send them to me and I will test them for you.
Come to think of it, I don't like Guinness either, but it would probably be fine in Gumbo
