In a stockpot, over medium heat, combine the tomatoes, onion, cloves and chicken stock. Bring to the boil, and cook gently for about 20 minutes to blend all of the flavours. Remove from heat and run the mixture through a sieve or food mill into a large bowl, or saucepan. Discard anything left in the sieve or food mill.
In the now empty stockpot, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in the flour to make a roux, cooking until the roux is a medium brown. Gradually whisk in a bit of the sieved tomato mixture, so that no lumps form, then stir in the rest. Season with a little sugar and salt, and adjust to taste.
