IMAM AHMED

قال ابن ذريح العكبري : طلبت أحمد بن حنبل  فسلمت عليه ، وكان شيخا مخضوبا طوالا أسمر شديد السمرة وعن محمد بن عباس النحوي قال : رأيت أحمد بن حنبل حسن الوجه ، ربعة ، يخضب بالحناء خضابا ليس بالقاني ، في لحيته شعرات سود ، ورأيت ثيابه غلاظا بيضا ، ورأيته معتما وعليه إزار .
Ibn Dharih al-’Ukbari said: “I requested to see Ahmad bin Hanbal. So, I greeted him, and he was an old man who dyed his hair. He was tall and Asmar extremely Sumurah to jet black in colour.”Muhammad bin ‘Abbas an-Nahwi said: “I saw Ahmad bin Hanbal with a handsome face, well-formed, and dyeing his hair with henna that was not too dark. He had black hairs in his beard, and I saw his clothes extremely white. When I saw him, he was wearing a turban and anizar.”

Ibn Hazm may Allah have mercy upon him understood  shadeed al Sumurah to mean as dark as tar :

In Majhooraat Ansaab Al Arab , Ibn Hazm Al Andaloosy on page 45 said,

” And Hassan was nicknamed the Father of Tar because of his intense Sumarah.’’

”والحسن، كان يلقب أبا الزفت لشدة سمرته
