An old ale maybe? I bet you've already got some good kettle caramelization.

It will probably be fine as long as you didn't turn it into burnt sludge. I'm guessing it probably didn't get that bad.

Hell yeah, throw some Montrachet yeast in there and see what you get!

Probably just lay down sideways.

I would water it back up to your desired finish volume, and then boil and carry on with late addition hops if you had plans for any. The kettle carmelization probably will add some nice body and flavor.

I'm pretty sure I read in Farmhouse Ales that boils this long or longer used to be fairly standard. I believe that was a fairly low boil, but still...I'm sure it'll be fine as long as you get to your volume and go with the late addition hops as others have said. Maybe shoot for something with a slightly more rustic character than originally planned? Whatever, your call!

You develop melanoidins and caramelized sugars with longer boils. Even if you add water to bring back the correct volume, it will probably be very hard to ferment out. It will also probably taste a bit like beef broth. However, I am interested to hear what it does eventually taste like, and how well it fermented out.

I did a 1.120 barleywine in january with a 4 hour boil. Went from 9.5 gallons to 5.5 gallons. It was hard to ferment out and stuck at 1.042. Not bad, but definitely on the sweet side.
