    When I recently unearthed some ancient (1988 expiry date) 11x14 Tri-X (never refrigerated - stored in numerous hot attics over the years)...I naturally opted for some of my "vintage" HC-110 - long-ago opened bottle with remaining contents as black as a good stout - and, lo and behold...got this as my reward:Click image for larger version.

    HC110 is not Rodinal. My bottle is yellowish and clear, almost full, but with about one year of being opened. I have not been able to develop some film, so I tossed.
