do both these products do the same thing?  i'm looking to get a licorice taste into my RIS.

thanks in advance.

The Licorice Stick is what a former Bell's brewer told me was used in their Kalamazoo Stout.  Works great.  No knowledge of the root.

I've used licorice stick in all grain belgian pale ales and saisons and in extract porters - definitely licorice flavor.

Chopped licorice root I've used in all grain old style porters with brown malt. More of a residual sweetness and a more subdued licorice flavor.

I've been dying to use licorice in my beers.  How do you think it complimented your belgian pale's and saisons?  I'd only be brave enough to put it in a porter.
