The cracked and scaly red-brown cap, and smallish, warty, subglobose, brown spores seem to indicate this identification (Mushrooms Demystified and Peterson Field Guide). The taste did seem somewhat bitter which also brought Sarcodon fuligineoviolaceus into the picture. However, S. rimosus is occasionally somewhat bitter and the S. fuligineoviolasceus seems to be a more eastern species. The one photo I could find didn’t look like a match.
