Notes: Taste very bitter, looks a lot like of like Tylopilus felleus, except that the stem is not bulbous.

There is nothing wrong to put T. felleus with the “could be” confidence level in the proposal box. Unfortuantely, all the info in our hands are the photos, the bitter taste, and other facts you may later recall from the distant corridors of your memory. :-) It’s mostly likely that; if not, it could be a species not included in Bessette’s bolete book, a copy of which I hope you possess.
I want to put a species name on this one, didn’t keep it though.
I agree that the stature of your specimen is rather unusual for T. felleus. I’ve seen a great deal of morphological variability for this species, including the depth and pattern of reticulation, but the stipe was always bulbous or at least clavate and never that slender.
