I had a an old wyeast packet which took a week to swell up.

I've never used it before and I had a bit of a taste of the pure yeast today. it tasted quite strange =/

I could certainly see it being used in a stout, but I'm not sure if the yeast had gpone off / I had left it at a too high temperature.

Don't worry about it Slight. They can take over a week to swell, depending on age. The temp you used to cultivate the yeast shouldn't affect it's ability to ferment your wort when you pitch it.
