I don't like the taste of fermented brown sugar (loses sweetness but still has a molasses taste, so it's not very good especially in large amounts) but I love blackberry wine. I have a recipe posted that I enjoy. If you reduced the sugar (and so the OG), it wouldn't be "hooch" but it would be a very nice lower ABV blackberry cooler type of drink.
