Of course, fermentation will change a lot, but it's at least a bit of an idea of what will happen.
Had a great reminder of just how true this is.  Saturday's brew had ~5% Amber malt.  I knew this was appropriate for the style, but was still a little worried it might prove too intensely roasty-toasty, especially based on a sniff-and-chew evaluation.  This afternoon,  at just over 50% AA, it tasted perfectly smooth and just rich, sweet and malty.   Some grains probably taste more "true" than others before they turn to beer.
