i have a cheap stainless steel flask , i have used it for a long time
the last time i used it was about 2 weeks ago , it had rum in it , i rinced it out and filled it with whisky , about 2 weeks ago , today when i poored a shot , it was really dark almost black in color ... still smells the same
but not the golden color it should be ... what has caused this?

Cr2O3 is a black oxide. Maybe that's what you are seeing.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
