Dark trans fluid is clear sign of a breakdown within the trans. As clutches wear, the debris from them affects the fluid which in turn looses its ability to work correctly. I highly suggest a trans flush to include filter. It may not be too late and you will be able to salvage the trans with fresh fluid. This absolutely step 1. It may simply solve your problem.
