i would lean more toward a porter base just for the fact you're looking for chocolate & mint and not that roasty bitterness you might get from a stout. the roasted barley in my recipe is competing with the mint and covers it up a bit. i imagine some carafa or debittered black would work better.

I don't see why an oatmeal stout wouldn't work here. Oatmeal stouts aren't typically as bitter as other stouts.
