Using 4 lbs, well, you better like maple flavor.
Well I had to rack my rocket fuel into a secondary sooner than I would have liked but I needed my primary fermenting container for another project. Any way, after getting 6.5 gallons racked into another 5 gallon carboy and a one gallon jug, I decided to have a tall sample glass out of fears of maple syrup. I didn't really taste it as it was still really green and bit like a rattle snake but, after one tall 16oz glass, it about knocked me into tomorrow.

Figure about another 3-4 months in secondary to smooth out before I'll notice all the extra brown sugar?

Difficult to say since you used light brown sugar, but I'd say the flavor is in there somewhere.
