Default Uncrushed roasted barley in Irish Stout

I made a batch of NB Dry Irish Stout and didn't realize until it was too late that the roasted barley was not crushed. I made it according to the kit (with UNcrushed barley) and obviously it is much lighter in color than a stout. My question is how will the uncrushed specialty grains impact the taste?

If it is not crushed, you cannot extract much from it. So, you removed the taste/color it would add. Just chalk it up to experience and enjoy your Irish Blonde http://wdesignstudios.com/blog/

That's kind of what I figured. I tasted a sample from the hydrometer last week and it was good, just not a stout. Thanks!
