I would roll with something like this:

.5 lbs Brown Sugar
3 lbs LME
2 lbs Simpson's
.5 lbs Biscuit
.5 lbs Coffee
.5 lbs Crystal 60

This bumps up the specialty grains for some character. Coffee is such a light roast, you can bump it up without getting that bite and heavy roast flavor. To keep the gravity from getting too high I pulled some 2-row, most of the b. sugar and all the maple syrup which really won't add much flavor.

Then I'd use an English yeast. Danstar Windsor or S-04 should do.
The hops look fine.

I think it will finish very dry, with little noticeable flavor impact from the sugars. I agree with PT Ray's analysis and suggestions.

Cheers!

Could I add maplewood chips to the secondary to get some maple flavor instead of the syrup?

Thanks for your suggestions!

Real maple syrup doesn't add a discernible flavor when fermented. 99% (or something like that) of maple syrup is fermentable and leaves behind little maple characteristic.

I like to make a dryer beer and then prime with maple syrup. This leaves a nice, subtle maple flavor.
