Lightly grease a 13x9 baking dish.
In a large bowl, combine finely chopped walnuts with sugar, cinnamon and cloves. Roll out phyllo dough, cut sheets in half and cover with a damp towel.
Place a sheet of phyllo into the greased pan, then brush with melted butter. Layer it with 7 more sheets, brushing butter in between each one. On top of the 8th layer of phyllo, spread a thin layer of the walnut mixture. Layer with 2 more sheets of phyllo, brushing butter in between. Repeat pattern of 1 layer of nut mixture and 2 sheets of phyllo with butter until all of the walnut mixture is used. Once it is used up, layer 8 sheets of buttered phyllo for the top.
Preheat the oven to 350?F and refrigerate the baklava in the meantime to let the butter set (making it easier to slice). Then, using a sharp knife, cut diamond shaped pieces by cutting horizontally across the long side of the pan 5 times, then cutting diagonally across the entire pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until lightly golden brown and the edges appear slightly crisp.
While the baklava bakes, prepare the syrup. Combine water, sugar, honey, lemon juice and cinnamon stick in small saucepan over high heat. Once it boils, reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 7-10 minutes, or slightly thickened. Remove the cinnamon stick and set aside to cool.
Once the baklava come out of the oven, evenly pour the syrup on top, getting in between all the pieces. Let cool, then serve warm or cold.
