Default Barleywine: Bottom Scorching?

I'm boiling down a barley wine from 9 gallons to 5.5 gallons right now, and I have it at a vigorous boil. Should I be worried about scorching when it gets close to five gallons as the sugar content builds up? If so, how can I avoid it?

I'm boiling in a keggle with a turkey fryer if it makes any difference.

No problem. The wort will caramelize some, but I doubt that will be a problem in a barley wine.
