Roasting 2.5 #'s in a 4# RK Drum at about 10 to 11 minutes there is a sweet smell as the beans go from their dry color, (of light green or yellow), to the desired final roast level darker brown color.  I have read of, and concur with, the notion that this is when the sugars start to caramelize in the beans, similar to cooling with many things such as onions as they cook and color with the heat.
I have not detected an identifiable aroma at first crack, but there is one at second crack that marks the time to pull and cool or to soon have French Roast, or beyond, to burnt = to be thereafter only good as a snail repellent on my patio plants.
