Austria clearly has as good a handle on the Doppelbock style as their neighbors in Bayern Germany. It has a nice malty taste, a slight alcoholic burn, and can warm you up nicely with the 8.5%ABV. This is one of the sister beers to Samichlaus. Personally, I think I'd rather have this, as it has an everyday flavor that suits me a bit more.
