That seems like a lot of roasted grains to me but I am no stout expert. I would go 10% max but that's just me.

If you are going for an oatmeal stout, you may want to include oats in some form.
On Tap/Bottled: Haze for Daze IPA, G Pils, Maibock, Watermelon Cider         

Fermenting: Kolsch
Up Next: Summer Ale, Gose

You might want some oats in there to round out the mouthfeel a bit along with keeping the pH in the higher range of things (maybe 5.6-5.7). That will help balance out the roastiness you're going after with this. I understand wanting a big roasty beer but if you don't balance it at least a little, it could come off a bit acrid. More like burnt coffee rather than a nice dark roast coffee that's been well-brewed.

Just some thoughts. =]

Good advice on pH and using oats (oatmeal stout, right?).  Also, I'd drop the pils and add that amount back in Golden Promise.  Pils would be lost in a roasty beer like this. And 10 -15% oats would be about right IMO.

I would swap the flaked barley for some flaked oats and get rid of the pilsner and just add some more golden promise. Just to be on the safe side I would lower the amount of dark grains you have to around 10%. When I do Oatmeal stouts I try to go 75% base malt, 10% oats, 10% dark grains 5% caramel style malt. I think you have a good start just needs some tweaking.
A fine beer may be judged with only one sip, but it's better to be thoroughly sure.
Kegged/Bottled: N/A
Coming up:
SMaSH Rye Pale Ale
Chocolate Rye Stout
Milk Stout

I think this looks fine, Maris Otter, Golden Promise or even American Pale Ale malt would work out great for a base malt, of course the English Pale Ale malts would be best. I would favor more Oats in place of the Barley (for an Oatmeal Stout), if you want to use both maybe 50/50 would be best for that addition. My only suggestion would be maybe a darker Crystal malt, something like C-60 or C-80 for this kind of Stout is a more usual choice.

Mash temp looks good, something around 154*. An English Ale yeast might make for a better Stout. I haven't used the Irish Ale much so I can't fully coment on that. Looks like you are off to a good beer.
