I've looked through the Magic Item Compendium thoroughly and it gives no mention of it.
I've searched the web, to no avail.
Brutal Surge is a weapon property that allows you to add a Bull Rush attempt to an attack once per day.
Here is an excerpt from a post by Glyfair at EN World, full link follows:
"The last two pages are weapon properties from the magic item section (of DMG II). Indeed, the first page has almost half the first column describing the format (presumbably carried over from the previous page).
They are covered in a lot of detail. Only 3 abilities are covered on the two pages, with pictures of two swords in the center of both pages. The abilities are Acidic Burst, Air Elemental Power (Synergy), and Brutal Surge.
Acidic Burst's first section gives a brief overview of the ability (mentioning it's simmiliar to corrosive weapon, but deals more damage). The next section is description; two paragraphs that describe what the weapon looks like ("It's surface is pitted and worn..."). "Activation" is the next section (a paragraph), followed by "Effect" (two paragraphs and a table), "Aura/Caster Level" (single line), "Construction" (two lines) and finally "Price."
Air Elemental Power is set up differently. The ability allows you to summon an air elemental and communicate with it. This powerful ability apparently causes the second section to be "Lore" which gives information a character would know about the ability with a Knowledge (History) check (DC 20 & DC 30 in this case).
The Brutal Surge ability is like the first in set up. The ability basically allows you to, once per day, add a bull rush attempt to an attack
Hope that's what you are looking for.
