It's common across dog breeds for brindles to start out very dark and the brindling to appear more and expand and they grow.
Being a long haired dog, you don't see the striping (unless shaved short).
He looks like a brindle to me. You can probably expect the brown (technically/genetically dark 'fawn', not the same as actual brown aka chocolate) to become more prominent.
Sable is a possibility but as far as I can tell from the pics, the colour goes all the way from skin to tips (sable would have black tips on lighter hairs)
The fading, which would turn it to darker (blue) or lighter (silver) gray with fawn, is a whole other aspect. However since you say his parents are black and chocolate, it sounds like neither carry a fading gene and therefore would not pass it to their pups.
