I would guess the best bet...

I'd guess your bottles had week spots, perhaps hairline cracks you didn't see, or are just weak bottles.

In MY experience...

When you add a fruit (puree or whatever) to the PRIMARY with the wort, the fruit flavor will be VERY subtle.
I describe it as a "spirit", because it mostly ferments out and...

Pretty much my opinion as well.

I wouldn't disagree if someone were to say a Stout is a "more extreme" porter,
