Default White chocolate porter, possible?

Is this even possible? I want to use real bakers chocolate and don't know diddly about cooking supplies. Does this exist? I also need a recipe for a nice, light porter. The kits are fine and all, but I want to think outside the box, no pun intended.
What do you think?

I would skip the white chocolate and do a dark chocolate vanilla bean combo to get a similar taste profile but a smoother drink. White chocolate isnt actually chocolate so im not sure how it would hold up.

That sounds like it would work better. Any recipes out there?

White chocolate I think would be too sweet for a porter. A nice DARK chocolate will have better flavor profiles for Porter.

White chocolate (real white chocolate...) must be at least 20% cocoa butter, so it technically IS chocolate. But "white chocolate" baking pieces are likely fake and mostly hydrogenated oil of one form plus sugar (or probably high-fructose corn syrup).

I like trying new and different things. Maybe you should too. It is what keeps this hobby interesting.
Could've just shaken your head behind your computer screen, refrained from hitting the reply button and moved on with YOUR brewing instead...
