De Atramentis Sepia Brown (35ml Bottled Ink) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not the usual Sepia I like the old fashioned era of Sepia colored photographs and wanted a brown ink of that time in history. Started looking and stumbled across the De Atramentis. Almost passed it by because it wasn't the Sepia brown I was expecting. Closer inspection showed it to be a rich reddish brown dark enough to be easily read. In fact it was a really beautiful uncommon shade of brown. The more I looked it the more it appealing it became. In fact I sort of lost interest in looking any further for the Sepia brown I originally had in mind. Liked it so much I filled my accompanying new Pilot Metropolitan and started using it for some of my primary writing. Solid line and dries quickly. Forget the other Sepia! Thanks for stocking it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great alternative to Black First of all, it's a great writing Ink. Flows nicely from all my pens - smooth and not dry. I wanted something darker than the Pelikan brown but not black, and this is just the right choice for me. It's a dark brown that stands out enough that I use it for professional as well as personal correspondence. I find it a great alternative to the standard black or blue inks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Soft color, nicely behaved Apparently the true sepia ink is derived from cuttlefish and has a light grayish cast -- this ink reflects that and is a gentle, slightly "dusty" mid brown. It behaves quite well on cheap paper, with minimal feathering and slight bleedthrough, and the color is actually preferable (to my eye) on absorbent paper -- on Clairefontaine it just sits there and is a bit dull. It's very pretty, and noticeably richer on color, on Strathmore Writing paper. I'd use a medium nib or broader for this, otherwise I think the color would look rather washed out. I had it in a narrow stub and it was quiet, but pretty. The ink has slight shading, not a lot. The swab (on my monitor) suggests a bit of burgundy, but I don't see it at all on paper -- it's a true brown. It is somewhat water resistant -- you can't soak it, but an envelope would remain legible in a rainstorm. Overall a nice ink and well worth sampling!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Nice brown with a red-ish hue. Looks great! It is especially nice in really wet nibs. Dries quickly and looks awesome.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An overall experience I am a younger man; almost of 40 years of age, but I enjoy all things of an earlier time. This is why I choose to use Goulet over a brick & morter store front; most opposite of my nature. I don't care & somewhat feel worry when buying online, but Goulet makes my mind at ease and their videos are as good as if I were their in my own flesh. I will never hesitate to remain a patron of theirs. The ink itself, Sepia Brown of the house of De Atrementis is a splendid ink; while to my disappointment leaned further toward the brown. It is of utmost importantance to read a name, even if two words ! I read Sepia,!and was instantly overjoyed and made the purchase. The purchase arrived to my front door much faster than I expected; if I recall properly it was three days from clicking that button. The true test came whilst writing using my TWSBI Classic with a 1.1mm Nib. I was impressed with the quality and attractive nature of the bottle itself. De Atramentis is quality ink and IMHO so is TWSBI. I was more surprised however, when I laid down a brown line, which dried to a more subtle sephia undertone. That's when I finally read the bottle and saw BROWN ! Sepia. I continued to write with this combination, and found it quite hard to stop using ! My folly was a blessing in disguise. If you prefer a more copper toned Sepia this is not for you, or maybe you need to try something new in a sample first. Previously I would have said this was not for me, I know enjoy this coloration very much; more so when it dries, not that it is a shading or, chameleon. This ink however, does show more color variation once dry, and once finished I will reorder this color without hesitation from Goulet. I hope my review has helped someone, best wish, and happy writing. - Aaron

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's not sepia, it's not brown, and it doesn't write well on coated paper This is a lovely ink, but strangely it's not the slightest hint of either sepia or brown. Instead it's a very red shade of purple. This purple shade looks quite nice on absorbent paper like printer paper, but unfortunately I'm less than enthused with its performance on coated paper like Rhodia and Clairefontaine. For whatever reason (I can't guess why), this ink just doesn't like to be coaxed out of the nib of any of my pens. It flows readily when there's nice, absorbent paper to draw it out, but when my paper's coating resists ink draw, I have to put pressure on my pen to get it to write. Because I generally write with a fine nib on a fountain pen, I don't like that one bit. I've tested this in a Platinum Preppy M, a Jinhao x450 F, a Pilot Metropolitan F, and a TWSBI 580AL F. All pens had the same flow problems with this ink on coated paper but wrote quite well on absorbent papers like regular printer paper, regular notebook paper, napkins, and such. I have to knock this ink a star because it's called Sepia Brown and looks nothing whatsoever like sepia brown the color (or really any shade of brown). I'm knocking it an additional two stars because It doesn't flow play nice with some of the most popular notebook brands used by fountain pen writers.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from more like brown The cones in my eyeball tell me that there isn't much red in the batch of De Atramentis Sepia Brown. Maybe too much green in the mix. Otherwise, ink works just fine. Nice thing about the sampler vials, one can give it a whirl...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than Black I like this ink as an alternative to basic black for its color that is close enough but with a difference that makes it stand out.
