I've been considering this for a smoked maple amber (a friend is a sugar maker and smokes grade c syrup). Has anyone actually tried it?

I'm making my annual winter warmer now...I'm adding 8 to 12oz to the keg and then immediately putting in the fridge to avoid further fermentation.
My uncle taps and boils down his own maple syrup in MN and gave me a quart. The rest is going to my buddy who makes a maple pecan porter...he does the same (kegging-wise). It seems to work best. Doesn't boost alcohol, or dry it out, and adds an amazing maple flavor.

So I bottled my maple pumpkin the other day. The smell, color and taste of this beer is unreal.
Quick recipe overview. This is basically northern brewers all grain recipe with 60 oz organic pumpkin purée in the mash. Added a gallon of grade b throughout the boil. 1.086OG
The maple is present and in my opinion perfect. Not too much but definitely noticeable.

I have been using maple syrup in many different beers for a long time. Since the stuff costs more than gold, I collect what is left each week after pancakes. When I fill my collector, I add it to my next brew. It is grade A and the result appears to be no different than regular sucrose. I have never tried grade B, I may have to give that a try.
