Ive had felleus that was hurtful in terms of bitterness, and mildly present. And more to the point, I think Walts point about peoples ability to taste bitter is more important. That being said, I think smell is subjective, but for me personally, its a huge indication quality.

I’ve tasted Tylopilus felleus (or at least what I thought was T. felleus) before and the bitterness was not strong at all, it just tasted bad. I’ll taste the next one I find and see what happens…

Did the tubes on this specimen appear larger than normal to you guys?
They appeared that way to me….

The spore print was pinkish.

Helps with ID but there are other bitter boletes. Also about 20% of men lack the gene for bitter and to them the taste of this species is not distinctive.

The taste of this one is its most distinguishing characteristic.
If you find another, chew on a tiny morsel, and you’ll know right
away. VERY bitter — bring some water to rinse your mouth with!
Not dangerous at all, just bad tasting.

Spore print for Tylopilus felleus is pinkish or flesh colored.
