Black Ruby has a Vintage on the label, not a Best Before date. Beer which has an ABV (Alcohol By Volume) at or above 7.3% ABV is packaged (like wine) with a Vintage and date of packaging. Like wine, beer packaged with a Vintage has no Best Before and does not expire, and like wine can be cellared, potentially for years. Beer which is cellared will likely change character, possibly losing some strong flavours and allowing other flavours to come to the fore.
