Default Porter and Flavor Profile Recipe Questions

First of all what I don't like that I taste in many Porters and Stouts:
-raisin or any dried fruit
-caramel
-licorice

What I like:
-coffee
-chocolate
-basic "dark beer" taste (I know that sounds dorky)
-thick bodied

Interestingly, I found what I like in Bells Kalamazoo Stout, which is made with licorice. ! I got a variety six pack for Christmas and have been trying different kinds of Stouts. This is one I didn't think I'd like. It doesn't have a whole lot of body but I like the taste.

I haven't yet tried a smoked Porter but I think I would like to add that aspect.

Does anyone have suggestions for part extract syrup and part steeped grain?

What is it that gives many of these beers the tastes I don't like?

Is there a different style I might like just as well? Thanks.

Special B, Crystal 120? I don't care for overpowering dark fruit flavors either.

Chocolate, roasted barley and black patent spring to mind.
