Maroon 1789 is a dark red with a little bit of sheen.
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.
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.
