Welcome to the forums
It's commonly referred to as "gurgle"
Moisture creaping into the shank of the pipe causes it
When it occurs you can blow back into the pipe one good slow breath, or run a cleaner in it, just be sure not to go into the bowl with it

Moisture build up in the bottom of the bowl bubbling and boiling is what was happening in my pipe. When i smoke a particularly wet tobacco it seems to happen.
Run a pipe cleaner to soak up the moisture , then go from there. The old cajun

Moisture building up, I usually just run a pipe cleaner. It gets rid of the problem, it happens more frequently with wet tobaccos.
It's your worst nightmare, blow some air back down into the pipe to silence the beast before it takes over your whole smoking experiance.

Also you can dry our your tobaccos for about 30 minutes before smoking. depending on how goopy your aros are.
If you smoke a pipe with a filter such as a sav, brigham or MM cob it will help eliminate that moisture.
Also, sometimes just slowing down will help.
