Mine was definitely BROWN when I took a hydro sample at 2 weeks. But by 4 weeks the yeast had dropped out and it revealed it true color - dark dark brown, almost black. I'm guessing that because the yeast is a creamy color, it influences the color of the dark wort. Again, just a guess. I've also seen it work the other way around with my lighter colored brews... Here's a pic of my black ipa. Beer Calculus puts it at 33*SRM.
