Rosco Black Velour Walls - How Dark is It?

For those that have painted their walls or ceiling with this paint, how BLACK is it in comparison to other black objects/materials in the room, such as black electrical plugs/plates, black velvet wall panels, etc.? My Rosco Black Velour looks charcoal grey in comparison to other true blacks in the room, and I'm trying to figure out if my paint cans were mis-labled. Note, that when wet the paint appears black, but when it tries it turns to a charcoal grey.

I am having the exact same problem. It isn't nearly as black as I was expecting. I have tried full strength and multiple coats of 1:1 dilution.

There are other things in my house which are painted blacker (such as my computer case) so I don't know if this is a mistake or what.
