Be careful what you wish for...
First up, a lovely dark colour. Accurate mixing instructions (I mixed by hand due to small quantity required) and good consistency of product during application (unlike the adhesive I bought from B&Q...but another review later). It is definitely BLACK (the Ebony one I am am reviewing here) and not dark grey, so it is striking when in place. I will warn you though, make sure that you definitely want to use a black grout, it looks fab but the mess...oh the mess...it gets everywhere! You will need many, MANY buckets of water to clean up, everything you use will be black by the end: cloths, sponges...and unfortunately in my case the grey tile trim. That was the biggest problem I found, the grout stained the trim! It says to test staining on tiles but didn't mention (nor did I think) to test the plastic trim. So beware, I'd stick to a metal trim next time. The only other bug-bear is the price. I was doing a WC splash-back of two mosaic tiles (2 x 300 x 300 mm) and the minimum I could buy was 2.5kg and at £18 that is quite pricey - yes I could have gone for white.... The effect is worth it and there are cheaper black grouts around if you want (but I did want good quality - and it is). If you're paying someone to tile then go for it, if you're a DIYer then you might want to think twice...

i do a lot of mosiac and this grout is the best I have used by far, its easy to mix and fills in the gaps great with out any air bubbles which can become gaps once the grout has dried whcih you then have to fill in again its quite cheap to as other superiour grouts are usually 9,99 per kilo. Brilliant product
