If you got three 16 oz jars from a 1 gallon brew then you didn't do it right. So I would just throw the 3 jars out. You should have only had one 16 ounce or two 8 ounce jars from a one gallon batch. ...

13 ounces of honey is about the same sugar content as 1.5 lbs of malt.

Yup, looks like lactobacillus to me.
I intentionally make beers with this bacteria added. It gives a great funky sour quality. Let it age a couple months and see if you like how it taste.

Looks like a good start, I would add another dark/crystal malt. Maybe Crystal 40 or 60. This will help give you a good caramel flavor that the style is known for.

Should be ok, just make a starter, if it starts right up then you are fine.
