Sorry, I misread your post. Since most extract brewers have trouble with their beer too DARK I assumed that was you problem as well.
At this point you need to figure out which is more important to you: Replicating the color of the beer or the flavor. If you want it darker, Joshua already covered that but like he said you run the risk of introducing different flavors to your beer.
I would make note of it in a log and remember to use darker crystal if you choose to brew it in the future
