Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by andchristina Dries to a different color
I had the same issue as other reviewers - once the grout dries the color lightens to a medium grey, not a charcoal as is pictured on the box. It seems like this is an issue with just about all black grout due to the amount of cement required.
HOWEVER I was able to salvage my project by using polyblend's grout renew colorant/sealant - it's good to seal your grout anyway and the charcoal grout renew does dry black!
I used the grout renew to brighten up dingy tile in the past so when I was disappointed in the color of this grout I was excited to see that they do make the grout renew in charcoal! I highly suggest that anyone planning on putting in tile with black grout uses the grout renew - I just used a toothbrush to scrub it on and wiped off the excess.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AmishGuy Color wasnt even close
I bought the Charcoal grout thinking it would be a nice color to completement my wood look tile I bought. I had a professional lay this grout a first time and the result was a light grey color with patches of white. I had the guy lay the grout again thinking that would fix the issue but again the grout was light grey. I tried cleaning with vinegar water as the manufacturer suggested which did nothing.
I attempted to find a way to fix this issue online and found out that multiple people had this same issue with this grout.
Take a look at the attached picture and see what Polyblend calls "charcoal". Will not be buying any Polyblend products again. If there was an option to give 0 out of 5 stars, I would have done it.

The grout was adequate for the job, but I had to buy WAY too much for a very small job. I had to mix it in batches, because it would dry too quickly. I wanted to get the pre-mixed variety so I could work on small patches at a time without having to mix another batch.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Donk Color not as advertised!
As other reviewers have reported, this grout is not the color that they say it is. It turns out to be a light colored gray. It's too bad that I didn't check the reviews before I bought it. Fortunately the color worked, otherwise it would have been a disaster.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by sk color consistency after 5 days of install is Terrible!!!
I bought this product from Home Depot and used a professional tile installer. After 5 days the grout color was inconsistent. I called the installer and he looked at it and said this is definitely the grout problem and requested me to get in touch with the product manufacturer!!! Is there somebody I contact to discuss my problem?
