That has been my exact experience,I’m 99.9% sure it’s going to be black when you change it. Happened to me before, the oil was still pretty transparent on the dipstick but pitch black on the way out
removing oil at ~200 miles via a fluid extractor.
The dipstick oil color is gold to amber,
and the bottom of the pan oil color is very dark brown, almost black.
