Is this for a 5 gallon batch? Steep your grains or PM?
I'd get rid of the maple syrup, ginger, allspice, & cascade.
Move to a mixture of 6.5lbs of Amber & Dark DME. 1.25-1.5lbs of honey added at flameout.(You could also add 1lb at flameout and the other .25-.5 to the secondary.
With 15mins left in the boil add two cinnamon sticks, .25tsp ground glove (do not use more than this in a 5gallon batch, it is some strong stuff when it is freshly ground up), .25-.5tsp fresh ground nutmeg, 1/2 to 1 whole vanilla bean cut open, and either Irish Moss, SuperMoss or Whirfloc tablet.
8ounces of Crystal 40/60
3ounces of US Chocolate Malt
Stick with Wyeast 1056 or SafAle US-05 for your yeast. Stick with a slight to mild spicy hop like Hallertauer. On a 5gallon batch stick with 1.5oz for bittering with no flavor/aroma additions. Depending on if you are using pellets or whole hops, stay around the 20-25 IBU area.
When you are transfering to your secondary take a gravity reading and taste the sample. Add more clove/nutmeg/cinnamon/vanilla at this point.
Depending on the taste you want, at most I'd add half of what you added during the boil to the secondary. (in regards to just the spices)
