American Porter 3V 1

As I said in the English Porter 3V 1 right up, I needed a couple beers that would last for a while for SHA Brewer of the Year.  I have brewed a few Robust Porters (now called American Porter in BJCP 2015) and this is basically the Jamil recipe but using malts I can get at my LHBS and tweaked for my process.
