About 16 years ago, I did the EXACT same thing to my first porter without advice from any friend.
While moving from my condo to a new place (~8 months post-dumping the batch), my little brother said the porter he just drank was the best he ever tasted. After I insisted there was no porter in my inventory, he showed me the 6 22oz bottles of the original kegged batch. I forgot I counter-pressure filled those 6, and he was correct. That beer was the best porter we EVER drank.
Needless to say, I never dumped a bad tasting batch of home brew since.
