2nd one is definitely better for a porter. I know I'm against the grain but it seems to be a better label for the beer. Just think of the sweetness of the marshmallow that she is about to roast that correlates to the to "honey" part of the porter. It's also a "darker" setting than the first picture which also relates. I could probably go on if I wanted, but hey, it's late and this is just my opinion which most people probably won't even care about, since every has fallen in love with the first one regardless of the reason for the choice. But this is my 2 cents.
