Our Salaf: Bishr Ibn Al-Haarith described Imaam Ahmad after the Mehnah

Bishr Ibn Al-Haarith (rahimahullaah) was asked about Imaam Ahmad (rahimahullaah) after the Mehnah, so he said: ”Ibn Hanbal was entered into the bellows (i.e. put to trial just as precious stones are exposed to fire in order to be cleaned) and he exited as red gold (i.e. firm upon his religion, upright, steadfast etc)”.
