Oops, sorry I never responded. I've pretty much been working non-stop since the day you posted this.
In the 2011 HBT competition, this recipe won the porter category. In 3 other comps, it never even placed, although it always gets good scores. The problem is it really doesn't fit the guidelines for any of the porter categories close enough to win competitions that are more strict about adhering to the guidelines.
I don't enter competitions anymore. I don't have the time to brew based on competition schedules, set up shipping, deal with all the waiting... Just not my thing any longer.
