deep freeze question

We have a chest freezer in the basement. I started stocking up on meat when it goes on sale. I never had a deep freeze before so I have a question about the meat. In December we got about 30 pounds of ground beef and broke them down into 1 pound bags. We splurged and got those bags that you can suction the air out of them with a little pump. I got them in the freezer the night before their expiration date. It was looking a little grayish on the outside but red inside.

Now the question, I went down tonight and was doing an inventory and noticed that the ground beef looks really dark. The blood in the bag looks brown yucky. Is it still ok? Is there a way to know if it is bad without thawing it?

One more, Does anyone have a link to a site that gives how long you can keep things in a deep freeze?

Thanks so much!
