Does extract flavor fade like ground spices in my cupboard?

I have peppermint. orange, maple, lemon, almond extracts--liquid in small brown glass bottles.
Some are 3-4 years old. Still good to use in candies, etc.? I use vanilla often enough to keep it fresh, but not the other flavors. Is it possible they get *more* concentrated with age/alcohol evaporation?
