Granted, I haven't had it from the bottle in years but I don't get hop aroma from the draught version....

You can also substitute Dark Molasses for treacle.

I actually plan on tweaking the recipe a wee bit next time I brew a porter. I really enjoy blackstrap molasses but that's not quite the flavor note I would be looking for, more of the treacle toffee (C&B to be specific if you are familiar with their flavor).

Our porter was done twice with White Labs London Ale yeast and has produced great flavors to compliment the beer.

Like others have said, the IBU looks to be way high, but if you balance it would a high starting gravity, then it may balance out well to be more of a Robust porter instead of a plain porter.

For a good porter recipe, check out Jamil's porter from his website (www.mrmalty.com). I've done both the extract and all grain versions and they are both mighty tasty.

After years of working a porter recipe, I ordered a Rogue clone (for variety) from AHB. It used 1.5 pounds of C120L, I'd been working the 0.5-0.75 range. So much better. Just bittering and aroma hops.

If I was going to dry hop (and I never have) a porter, I'd stick to the earthy hops like Fuggles.

I double checked the AHS recipe and it's:

1.75 oz Fuggles @ 60
.25 oz Fuggles @ 15

The grain bill is also pretty different too.

If you look at Fuller's site, they list the following:

"Fuller's London Porter captures the flavours of those brews perfectly, although you won't find a cloudy pint these days! Smooth, rich, and strong (5.4% a.b.v.), our London Porter is brewed from a blend of brown, crystal and chocolate malts for a creamy delivery balanced by traditional Fuggles hops."

BYO seems a bit in left field on this one between the grain bill and hop selection.
