Irish Potato Beer at Dublin's

Dublin's just brought in a new beer on tap that looks interesting. Finnegans Irish Amber is made with all the standard beer bits including "three varieties of imported two-row malt" and to that they add POTATOES. I'm interested in tasting what flavors the potatoes contribute. Maybe it's what brings the Irish to their amber.

Another aspect worth noting is that profits from the sale of this beer go directly into a charitable fund. Here's what the company says:
Finnegans Irish Amber is the only non-profit beer company in the world. 100% of the profits from sales and merchandise go to the Finnegans Community Fund, which distributes to programs helping the working poor and at-risk youth.
There you go, potatoes and philanthropy. Sounds like dinner to me.
