I heard from the brewery today, and it was an interesting response, so I thought I'd report it back here:

Sorry to hear you are experiencing the gelatinous glob in Santa’s Little Helper.  That is actually something that is from the starches in the malt.  The chocolate malt, oatmeal, and roasted malts have formed a starch like substance from the high levels of beta-glucans in the wort.  Hope it helps to know that it was not dangerous and would not affect the flavor.  

Now obviously I'm wishing I had tasted it.  :-\

I found something similar in a RIS I made and agd for a couple of years.  The beer was just fine.

So if a brewer intended on reproducing this bottle-snot, say for a Halloween beer, how would one brew it?

+1 gummy worms
Vote Jonathan Fuller for AHA Governing Committee. For every yes vote, Jonathan will send you a can of Heady Topper.
