Default Wyeast 1084 Irish Ale Yeast Too Thin?

I recently made an Oatmeal Stout. I used the Clone Brews recipe and followed it exactly, and noticed that it produced a watery beer with little to no mouthfeel or matlyness.

Could the yeast just have fermented too much of the sugars? Is that typical for an Irish style ale yeast?

Thanks for the help guys, I'm new to Irish and British style ales.

I've read you can't really steep oats to make an oatmeal stout. You have to at least do a partial mash. My desire to make an oatmeal stout is what made me try all-grain. So that might be why it feels thin to you.

That actually makes a lot of sense. I still am curious about Irish Ale yeast and what makes it different. Not a whole lot of info on it out there
