I've played it for some time, too. It's fun, although taptap's comments are correct and it might get boring after a while. It's like a crossover between Angband and The Sims for people with a degree in geology.

The most difficult part of the learning curve in the beginning comes from the fact that the interface is quite complex, but as an Angband player you should at least be prepared for this.

Grab one of these to get started: http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=124613, keep a browser tab open on http://dwarffortresswiki.org/, and don't be afraid to abuse traps as a defensive strategy in the beginning -- unless it has changed in the last versions, army management is a pain. Good luck!
