I’ve also had this happen. Usually, when it does, it is because I didn’t wipe the excess stain off thoroughly enough after letting it penetrate as directed. I have done this intentionally a few times in order to get the color as dark as I want it. Having done this I will then flow on or spray on a coat of shellac to stabilize the stain and then continue with the finish I want.

I assume the “brownish tint” is not something you wanted. I don’t think this is related. Most stains will look somewhat different after applying a coat of finish. It is best to test it first.
