Strange black bracket... it

Strange black bracket... it looks to me a bit like a birch polypore but that is brown and ages to greyish rather than this matt black. Maybe it was in a fire? Or a similarly burnt Ganoderma lucidum which is usually reddish brown. Or there is Phellinus nigricans, whish is black on top but that has a grooved often cracked top surface whereas this one is untextured. So, I can't come up with an ID. Hopefully an expert will help with it...
