It's normal. It doesn't/can't burn real clean when the cylinders are stone cold.
What jettawreck said. What you're smelling is atomized but unburned fuel that was injected during the first few cranks before it fired up. The CAT in the exhaust system is also stone cold and won't do anything until it's up to temperature.

I love the smell of diesel in the morning.

Good luck and Welcome to TDIclub.
