I fried couple peices a couple days ago for a taste test before reading your comments and they were quite bitter, did not east, though texture was good, very meaty.

include both Boletus and Suillus. Many of these are considered choice edibles. Many (but not all) Suillus have glandular-dotted stipes (stems) and may have a veil, neither of which are obvious here.

Boletus is the more likely species for this observation IMO.

After taking a closer look at photo 2, there is an annulus present (just below the eaten portion of the stipe), which suggests there was a veil present at one time.
