Yes some people have gastric disturbances from them, but as Alan rockefeller once said “gastric disturbances are for sissies” :)

Its hard to find them here that are as perfect as the one you have, no bugs in the stem that is beautiful. The first time I ate them I was worried about being in the car with 5 other hunters with mushroom gas, but all was well they were delicious.

Just take a very small amount cook it well then eat it. See how your stomach feels after that.

I thought about eating it

but I fear the possible sickness. Some people report getting sick from eating them. They smell wonderful.

Did you take it home to eat? They are wonderful with eggs.

I’ve noticed that the skin and pore surface bruises blue, but the inside stays yellow when cut.

I’ve noticed the occasional and not so slow blue/black bruising on the stipes of what I call bicolor here in PA.
