Chocolate milk... Nope I'd strongly disagree, usually water causes it to look like that. A deep kinda dark brown is normal, once you get that milkyness to it, that's a sign of water.
It should look like this:
If it looks like this, water is either getting in through the vent, from being subberged in high water, of you have a leaking axle seal letting water in
if you're engine oil looked like that milky color, you would have an obvious head gasket/internal coolant leak. Niether situation is good for the metal parts the oil is supposed to be lubricating
