This is a review of Montblanc's Toffee Brown ink. It's very similar to Visconti Brown/Sepia. A very nice ink.
It was used on three different papers with a Belmont pen with a Binderized medium nib. There papers were: HP Laserjet 24lb, Mohawk via Linen 70# text weight, and Moleskine.
The Montblanc Toffee Brown is a warm brown and is very similar to the Visconti brown/sepia in tone. In that regard, they are practically indistinguishable. The difference lies with the MB being a bit warmer in color temperature, and being quite a shady ink. It's in the lighter areas where the warmth really comes out.
A very fuss-free ink at least in this pen. This ink is not as dark as Sailor Doyou which is like writing with an ebony twig or liquid chocolate. The MB comes in their classic 60 ml bottle. The ink does not stain the interior of the Belmont's clear barrel. Recommended.
The following pic is a scan with the feature "text enhancement" turned ON. It gives a darker treatment to the ink than in reality. But the text is clearer I think.
The following pic is a scan with the feature "text enhancement" turned off. It gives a more realistic depiction of the color, hue and tone of the ink.
Here are photos from the iPhone, so no color correction, but the value for the ink may be good.

On the via Linen paper. This is a page in a handmade notebook I made for myself. The black splotches on the right running vertically was from my printing the lines on the page. The printer (since tossed) was giving problems.
And a chromatic evaluations. I don't know if the ink is made of a brown, with red and green accents, or if it is solely from dyes of red and green. My guess is the first. I think this ink will sheen given the way I saw it behave, but I don't have papers where that would happen.
