This potion is completely safe to quaff, even if the BUC status is unknown.
The effects of this potion are completely superseded by a unicorn horn, the only difference being that this potion is 100% reliable, whereas even a blessed unicorn horn has a chance of doing nothing. It is a prime candidate for dilution.
In SLASH'EM, the potion of restore ability has an important new use: magical polymorphing is usually temporary, and items and monsters will revert to their original form with time. If you dip a polymorphed item into a potion of restore ability, its new form will be "fixed" and become permanent.
