As the others have said, I reckon it's definately the unfermented sugar giving that thick taste.

What about the "green" aspect.

This would lead me to believe it may be infected?

You know like a swimming pool or fish tank.

'Green' = young; not actually the colour green!

If your FG was at 1.019, that is rather high. A little maltiness should be expected. Can you see any sleeping yeast on the bottoms of bottles? You won't have carbonation until there is at least a little layer of 'em down there.
