That would be chestnut brown, not maroon. Hence the chestnuts next to the bottle in the image.

The chestnut picture is indicative of the of the color but again R&K themselves are the ones calling it Maroon.

Not sure if Maroon as a word has different meaning in German.

Yea, I think they've stumbled over a "false friend". The German word for (edible) Chestnut is "Marone", which is very similar to the English word Maroon and comes from the same root (Marron, from French). See also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maroon

Ah now this makes sense, something feels off when they called it Maroon.

Thanks for pointing it out.

in japan, chestnuts are called 'maroon'. so 'maroon' ink color to me is the color of chestnut's skin, which is reddish brown.

This has been such a fascinating topic (perhaps unintentionally so). I never would have thought of maroon as a shade of brown, yet it would seem that others would never have thought it a shade of red.
