I’d lean toward Boletus discolor -

for this but old boletes become very difficult to pin down and this one is clearly an old-timer so it could be any one of the large group of red-pored boletes that associate with oak. I guess you could say it’s a luridae.

This is why I say Boletus subvelutipes group.

I’ve never seen. It looks very much like Boletus morrisii(except for the red cap) but morrisii doesn’t stain anything like that and it’s not bitter. Cool bolete.
