Shelf Life 0w/40 Castrol Edge

I have had a couple of Castrol Edge 0w/40 5-quart jugs in my garage (not climate controlled) for about 5-6 years now.... I am in NC, so you can get an idea of what the climate is. Due to my laziness / and sometimes using Pennzoil Ultra 5w/40, I have neglected to use this oil. Would there be a problem using this? I have no idea what the shelf life of motor oil is, i general. Is there anyway to check like a simple test that one can do to make sure it's not unsuitable for use? WWYD? (The car is my 2005 E46 Bimmer with the inline-6)
