The Bottle: A small rectangle plastic bottle. I think this is just for sampling purposes.
The Color: This is a great black color. I have found it to be a black-black, and not very influenced by purples, blues or greens like other black inks.
Consistency: Saturated and consistent. I tested this ink in a Lamy Joy AL Calligraphy pen with a 1.1 mm nib and it flows well. I never had a problem with clogging or drying and it was a pleasure to use.
Other Considerations: None I can think of – this is a great ink!
