Mountain Dew Black Label is a Mountain Dew flavor that was pre-released in August 2015 on select colleges and universities campuses across the United States. It was later officially released in March 2016, which coincides with the Deeper, Darker Dew promotion.


Mountain Dew Black Label is defined on the can itself by its dark berry flavor, being crafted with herbal bitters and real sugar. Its color is a red-purple magenta, and the taste has been described as reminiscent of the Dark Berry or Pitch Black flavor of Mountain Dew.

The can itself is 16 oz., which is larger than regular 12 oz. Mountain Dew cans which come in boxes. Like its counterparts White Label and Green Label, its cans also have a noticeable matte finish similar to the later Mountain Dew Energy flavors.


Its tagline is "DEW with Crafted Dark Berry". Pre-release cans of Black Label described the drink as being "Naturally & Artificially flavored," which was later changed to "Dark Berry flavor with other natural flavors".


In August 2015, Black Label was pre-released on select colleges and universities campuses across the United States.

Beginning in March 2016, officially, it was released in stores throughout stores nationwide in the United States as a permanent flavor.
