Thank you greatly for your time and advice on the phone this morning. I am finding that the revealed color is indeed far, far darker then the initial appearance indicate. It’s a rich lustrous brown, and while not black, it certainly seems within tolerance for what the project photos of other Black Acid Stains look like. So, in sum, we’re all good here and I’ll be ordering additional concrete acid stain for future projects as I really appreciate the customer service. Thanks again.
