The darker the brown sugar, the more lingering the flavor will be. There are quite a few pumpkin ales on the market that are primed with brown sugar that have plenty of brown sugar on the taste buds. I've used it and it worked fine....
Priming with it is not the same a using it as a main fermentable in the boil. You're going to still get the mollassesy flavor.

I gotta tell ya, just between us girls, that Revvy is HOT. Very tall, gorgeous grey hair and a terrific smile. He's very good looking in person, with a charismatic personality... he drives like a ****ing maniac! - YooperBrew
