If it is leaking into the manifold I would say the surfaces are warped. May need to take it off and have that surface planed. It is the same method used to resurface exhaust manifolds.
That hose does serve a purpose however. It stops icing of fuel. The slight amount of heat it apllies to the intake manifolds will reduce the odds of icing in the carb.

Especially one that is flat without the opening for the water... (EA81 one) and a new Weber gasket.
Use the high temp Red RTV silicone, and make sure it's on there good, but not so that you're worried about it squirting out too much. some say "just till it looks 'wet' " but I don't know about that.
Mine used to leak when I did and didn't use any type of sealer. I've used the red RTV stuff on all of my gaskets now in my car (except head gaskets) and nothing leaks!

On my EA82 I took a small square of 1/8" aluminum stock, tapered the edges, pushed down the brass feed nipple in the port a bit, tapped in the square a little bit below the surface of the plane, then covered it w/quicksteel, scraped it flush w/ the plane and was happy, no leak. Good luck.

Now you're talking! I think I am going to do that to my intake when I yank the engine in afew thousand miles for maintenance.
