ALL beers get darker in secondary, it's an optic illusion. As it clears sediment falls out of the beer giving light less to reflect off of. Because of the amount of colored liquid it appears black. When you siphon out you'll see the true color...
BTW, if you burned the wort it would be immediately dark, not after fermentation.
