I find that cacao is quite a strong flavour, you should get something from it.

I 'dry nutted' the coconut and cacao in the secondary and got lots of coconut flavour.
not sure if anything came from the cacao at this stage as I'd boiled with it, too.

I think cacao does disperse or dissipate it flavour quite easily.

I'd be up for a vertical or horizontal tasting of both beers sometime, soon.

I am thinking of doing a triple chocolate stout with chocolate malt, cacao and 100% chocolate sometime soon.

Yours should be interesting with the oak too!

I'm sure the porter will be lovely even if the standard Grundy 8% rule has been broken!
