Robert Oster Maroon 1789 is a gorgeous dark red. I used a sample for this review, but bottles of Maroon 1789 are 50 ml. You can find samples here, or bottles here at Goulet Pens

Robert Oster has some amazing ink, but I think he does fall inks exceptionally well. 

Dry time: Maroon 1789 took 40 seconds to dry.

Water resistance: This ink is not water resistant. 

Feathering: Maroon 1789 feathered a little bit on Baron Fig paper, but did well on the other papers.

Show through: Maroon 1789 had low to medium show through on all of the papers.

Bleeding: Maroon 1789 only bled on Baron Fig paper, but did great on the other papers.

Other properties: Maroon 1789 had low sheen and medium shading

Longer writing:

I used a broad Vanishing Point Twilight on Tomoe River paper. I didn't have any flow issues with this ink.

Overall, I love this ink for fall. I only have a sample of this ink, so I will definitely be buying a bottle in the near future.
