Default Maple Estate Beer Recipe

We collected about 1/2 gallon of maple syrup this year. So we were thinking that we could make and "estate beer" using that syrup and our own hops. We've been discussing whether we should make it a big and complex beer or a moderate gravity beer that is more of a SMaSH with maple syrup.

I'd really like to hear what people think would be more balanced, enjoyable through the fall/winter, and/or just taste better. I've never brewed with maple syrup and so I have no idea how much is necessary or how it will turn out. So... what do the sage brewing wizards of HBT think?

Here are the two recipes:
SMaSH-like:
10lb maris otter
1lb maple syrup -added at flameout
2oz homegrown Goldings
WLP002
OG=1.067
BU=60 (or something approximating that)

Complex recipe:
13lb maris otter
1lb munich
1lb chocolate
.25 roasted barley
1lb oat flakes
2lb maple syrup
4oz homegrown goldings
wlp002
OG=1.092
BU=75
