Default Maple Nut Brown - too sweet?

Did a maple nut brown recipe from the local brew store & put 2 quarts of maple syrup in the wort as soon as I turned the heat off. aged 2 weeks in a primary, 3.5 weeks in a secondary and I just bottled tonight.

so sweet! almost too sweet...

anyone have experience with using maple syrup, and whether or not the sweetness mellows out?

Thanks

What kind of syrup did you use?
What was the original and final gravity readings of the beer?

Normally maple syrup ferments out completely and leaves very little flavor. What was your yeast & attenuation?
