This collection has been made in an intensive attempt to find the most ideal and complete shades of brown color fountain pen inks over the internet and as long as writing with a medium size fountain pen is what I'm concerned of, the "infinity symbol" on a regular paper is the thing I've considered saving these samples.
I've also benchmarked the index card samples for those which were not available in infinity sample. All the top-rated fountain pen inks – even those which are not mentioned here probably for the lack of a quality brown ink – have been taken into account.

 

~ Here's the list ~

Note: the absorption of the ink to the paper could vary. Before purchasing any of the inks above be aware some of them are dry while the others are wet. Plus, based on the fountain pen model and paper you use, the colors could look different. Make sure to use fountain pen inks only, otherwise your fountain pen will clog. Stay away from drawing, calligraphy, lawyer, and India inks. They are not designed for the fountain pens. Platinum and Sailor have some pigmented-based inks; avoid them.
Take all these into account.

Welcome aboard! This thread is a wonderful contribution!  Please be sure to cite which FPNer created the original content. Also, please add the photos to the brown thread (see the signature line below).  One thing to consider - instead of one post, put one or two pictures per post - this helps speed up the system. Also, if you type the name of the ink in that post, it will show up in the searches.  Again, thank you!

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Greetings, and thanks for your caring.
Actually it took almost one week to complete the selection and picking the boldest ones; Therefore I've forgotten most of the sources, but I'll cite as much as I can recall.
The hilarious part was when I've tried to purchase one. There was not a single of these inks available in Iran thanks to US's sanctions.

Herbin's Cacao du Brésil is (in a wet enough nib) a lovely cool brown (with violet/grey

components): 

 

 

And de Atramentis Document Brown (

) is another attractive brown. Maybe also Krishna Inks Dark Chocolate.

 

Frustrating about not being able to get any of the inks though.

 

Maybe as a possibility for working around this - making a walnut-based ink? (As far as I know, Iran grows lots of walnuts.)

 

I've made some walnut ink (the easy way, but using walnut ink crystals), and just for use in dip pens, but there is some earlier FPN discussion about making fountain pen-safe walnut ink:

You can be sure those I've mentioned above stand head and shoulders above any others.
Plus, for making a hand-made fountain pen ink, I'm not gonna take the risk.
