Appy's are many times have the wrong color on their papers. Your stallion cannot be a true black (blue) roan unless he has a roan parent. Most likely hes a varnish appy given that neither of the parents you listed are roan. My friends that breed a lot of appys swear that silver dapple X appy gives more color.
