Marionberry is a hybrid berry. I see it in Oregon a lot, where I think it was developed. A lot of wineries offer jams in their tasting rooms there.
It's like an intense blackberry, with a stronger more aromatic nose, I've herad people pitch it as a 'Cabernet Flavored' berry.
It does not smoke crack or govern our nations capital.
Stefania nailed it. I've been eating Marionberry jam on my pancakes for years at Bette's Oceanview Diner in Berkeley, which is where I was introduced to it. It's the house jam.
Creosote is a smoky, rich, tar like aroma.
