How does Perle sound for bittering and Fuggles at 30 and 0 for flavor and aroma?

My personal recommendation is to never use Fuggles, especially for aroma and flavor!

Hey, Denny, leave that hop alone.

Meh.  I like Fuggles.  Particularly in an English ale.

But for a big porter my first thought was Centennial.

I like porters with Wye Challenger for bittering and Fuggles for late additions, but don't go overboard.  For my non-hoppy beers I'll go with a 60, 20, and flameout addition.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico
