Honey or not?

Armillaria mellea

I found these growing on a base of a living white oak that has dead sections on 9/6/04.  The largest cap, shown in the last picture, was 7.5" in diameter.  The description for Armillaria mellea, in the guide, matches my specimen pretty well except for the size.  They give 4" as the largest diameter.  Also the stem is about 1 inch in diameter on the largest. The spore print looks white to me.
