This looks like a blend of dark modelling chocolate and black fondant. Or dark modelling chocoalte and black paste colour. Or commercial brown fondant and black colour.

If it is too red, add some green. It makes it look deeper and browner. I agree with black as well. If it is to be chocolate as well as brown, the Hershey's Dark cocoa powder is a rich dark brown.
