We first encountered this beer at Arundel Mills Mall DuClaw brewery store. Wife and I ate lunch there and had a glass of Bad Moon Porter... Delicious. Another couple of exposures to this brew and we bought two growlers to take home. Each time it was a thoroughly enjoyable, rich, dark beer with a firm head, mild hopping and bold flavor.

I will admit to being an unsophisticated beer consumer, but we really enjoyed this beer. The problem is, despite DuClaw characterizing this as a "year-round-availability" beer, we have found it out-of-stock for quite some time now ( as of October 2013 ).

DuClaw e-mail promises that a batch is being brewed right now ( October 2013 ) but my recent run to Arundel Mills Mall DuClaw store yielded only some Dark_Side_of_Oz... Enjoyable, but only 50% content of "Bad Moon Porter".

So, Does anyone in the DC area have success in buying "Bad Moon Porter" ?

Poured into pint glass from tap at duclaw in Bowie. Pours a deep brown with ruby wine color hue. No head at all. Meh
Smell is roasted chocolate malts which dominate. This carries over to the flavor. Dominating sweet roasted chocolate malt. It does have a nice bitter finish though. Its a solid porter. Not amazing but not bad.
