I don't want to sound like a snob, so I didn't say much besides "it'll taste bad". Oh, I've never tried it so I'm not speaking from experience here. I just have many years of experience behind me. There is a reason sugar wash is distilled. If it tasted great right out of the fermenter, don't you think more people would do it? Even really high ABV "good" wines taste like rocket fuel for the first five years. A fermented sugar wash just isn't an ideal drink.
I have never eaten ice cream with spaghetti sauce, either. But I have enough experience in food to know it wouldn't taste good. Same with this instance- you don't have to have personally have tasted it to know it won't taste good.
It'll get you drunk, no doubt. There'll be plenty of alcohol in it. If you can gag it down, it'll do the trick.
I hope you do try it, and report back with your experiences. Then we can all benefit from the experiment.
