Default Porter recipe please!

Hello all
Was in york on the weekend and came across a very nice porter by great heck brewery...called DAVE..dark and very enjoyable! Very smooth and lovely dark roast coffee and chocolate flavours.
I've emailed a grovelling request to them for a recipe but incase I'm unlucky can anyone suggest a great porter recipe??

Regards

Clint

I'm bottling http://www.thehomebrewforum.co.uk/sh...ad.php?t=74634 next week. The gravity samples have tasted lovely and chocolatey so I have high hopes for a decent pint or 2.
