i wouldn't do chocolate and dark lme, but that's just my taste. i think you'll end up with bitter sweet chocolate, not really a porter. just mho, and there are many people here who can evaluate it better, as i have no real experience with lme

Hop utilization increases as you increase your boil size, so your beer will be hoppier. If you're brewing a Honey Porter, you probably don't want much hops. I'd only add a half an ounce of Kent Goldings at 60 minutes. Alternatively, I might add the full ounce, but wait until 45 minutes.
