Porter / Stout Kit Recommendation

I have read the available reviews and previous posts and would like some final advice.

I am looking for a solid porter/stout kit which I intend in later brews to hack with chocolate / coffee/ whiskey wood chips. I will be bottle conditioning.  I have only made one porter before - St Peter's Honey Porter. Way too much honey and not enough porter for my taste.

Since all tastes are personal... I like in order  #1 Porter House Plain, #2 Guinness, #3 Beamish (but only if I am Cork and don't want to offend).

The kits that come out best in the reviews I have read are the St Peters Cream Stout and the Coopers Irish Stout.  There was a good review of the Craft Range Stout but HMW don't seem to carry it anymore.

All suggestions welcome (as long as they are stout related).




Coopers Irish Stout would be my favorite
