The coolant in my 08 700 is green and it has 4500 mi on it! Have never seen dark brown coolant that wasn't in an old unmaintained cooling sytem. I would say you should flush your system with 50/50 mix of white vinegar and distilled water. Then flush with just distilled water and then add 50/50 mix of new coolant and distilled water.

They make some long life stuff that is usually a red color. If this gets a little old or dirty it can look brown much quicker than the green stuff would look brown.
