It appears that Minnesota Amber Sorghum is also known as Black Amber, Ames Amber, Waconia Amber, Dakota Amber and Early Amber.  The seeds are a rich dark black color.

Sorghum is a versatile crop and is historically grown as a sweetener, especially during times of economic hardship.  It is mention in this 1941 Iowa State University report as suitable for syrup production in Iowa.
