I never bother with either Irish Moss or gelatin in my dark beers. It's too dark to notice anyway.

I missed that part. In that case, yes you want to rack to secondary. Good sanitation and careful racking and you are golden.

Even if it was and issue.....just let it cold condition longer, and problem solved.

Good sanitation and careful racking and you are dark brown. Nothing about sanitation and racking will turn a stout to golden.

The only time I've believe irish moss has helped when comparing my two 60-Minute IPA's. My first DfH clone (and second brew of anything) was a super cloudy hoppy mess*. I went online, found Homebrewtalk for the first time, and read that irish moss was the probable solution. Eventually I made my 60-minute Tamarindia Ale with irish moss. It's clear.

*Usually I prefer cloudy beers, but the first 60-minute was so bad I had to strain each bottle when pouring into a glass. Yummy though.

I bottled this batch last night. Amazingly, it tastes like an oatmeal stout. I cant wait until it has conditioned.
