Glycyrrhiza glabra
The flavor of licorice should not be confused with that of anise, which is not related and is quite different when tasted side by side. Licorice has been used for everything from cough remedies to ulcer cures. The root imparts a very characteristic flavor and is surprisingly sweet and slightly woody. It contains glycyrrhizin, a substance 50 times sweeter than sugar, and it is often added to chocolate to enhance sweetness. It is used to make root beers, and also in some beer beers.
