Dark brown to match the knots and darker parts of the "wood"

Since these tiles are intended to mimic the look of a wood floor (which has no grout) then I would select the color that most disappears next to the tile. It is impossible to tell from a computer monitor what the real colors are. I would go to a tile store (or several tile stores so you can look at different brands of grout - the colors in each brand vary) and look at various colors and stand back away from it to see if they disappear or stand out.

Agree with Deborah .. you do not want the grout to "pop" .. just blend/sleep in the background.

Tile retailer's have a great tool called MAPEI'S Grout Color Helper; you just put it on your tile and it takes a picture and finds matching grout options for you.

I can see going either way suggested. The dark brown would give you a rustic "plank" look, and the matching grout gives a more elegant clean look.
