Djarum Coklat Extra, Wow, great clove, hints of other subtle spices, very slow smoke, lots of body, wonderful sauce on banded end. Super consistent, tight, hand rolled. Burns very evenly. Got a carton, then another (and more). If you like a full flavored, non-filtered Kretek then you owe it to yourself to try these. Smoke times run around 20 minutes. Ratings: Coklat Extra's #1, Coklat #2, Djarum 76 #3

Djarum Coklat Extra is a very tasty and bold kretek. Strong, rich, dense tobacco smoke; strong, if slightly "blunt" cloves; and a strong and pretty unusual sweetness that isn´t honeyish nor white sugary, but rather very richly, darkly Muscovado sugary, or even slightly raisin-like. This cigarette reminds me a lot of Mr Brown, only richer, fuller, much sweeter, and much, much higher quality in the tobacco and the cloves.
So, rich, full, sweet, high quality; it is a great cigarette, then. I am only missing some extra spices and complexity in here. And if you are a Djarum 76er like myself, this is more than different enough to serve as a variation if you want a break from the 76, unlike the Djarum Coklat non-Extra, which is too much like a restrained, muted 76.
If you aren´t against unfiltered kreteks, you really should try Djarum Coklat Extra. It does its own thing, is very distinctive, and is a great kretek.

Having these named Coklat "Extras" is misleading as they taste and look nothing like Coklat Originals. I wouldn't even begin to compare either of them in any way.
Non-filtered, they appear to be wrapped in either unbleached brown paper or actual sheet-tobacco which would be amazing. The non-tobacco ingredients are very strong and very complex; I think the clove/eugenol effect is by far the strongest I've had to date. Incredulously, they don't taste quite as sweet as other kreteks, and the tobacco/non-tobacco ingredient taste ratio is well balanced.
Very dark looking tobacco rolled inside; not quite as dense as your normal kretek but I think that works to it's favor because the flavor and body profile is exquisite. It seems that Javanese and Srintil(?) tobacco are just plain smooth and strong to begin with.
Usually I find that paper-wrapped anything tends to overpower any drink I consume whilst smoking a kretek, but these "Extras" compliment the taste of coffee especially and bring out more notes, rather than suppress!
Amazing plumes of smoke and excellent room note!
I've had Djarum 76s, Bentoel Sejatis, and Djarum Coklats so far, and while 76s are my old standby, these are definitely a re-buy!
It would be the bees knees if I were to find out that the Extras are a 100% Tobacco/Sauce/Clove kretek with no paper!

Dear Jeff of Ciggies World, Thank you very much for being my favorite kretek source. The last package arrived beautifully and timely. I look forward to this new order as the Djarum Coklat Extras are incredible. I'm very much looking forward to trying your suggestion of the Djarum 76's. Thank you again,

Ok, so I tried them again and I liked them a lot more than the first time. They seemed a lot sweeter and more clove tasting than I had first thought. I suppose I could raise up my rating to 7/10, but even though they are better than I had thought, they still aren't quite my thing.

I was a bit disappointed by these. They are said to have a very unique sweet taste. The clove notes seemed very muted to me. They have a slightly sweet paper, but the smoke tasted a lot like a regular cigarette. The clove taste was minimal and very much in the background, so to speak. These are insanely thick, and they really bothered my throat after a while. Probably the least clove-y unfiltered kretek I've ever had.

I ordered 1 pack of these along with several cartons of other Kreteks thinking that I would just give them a try. I now regret not ordering several cartons. What a great smoke! This is a very complex smoke, with a very unusual flavor. Richer and denser than the 76. Not as spicy. A bit more tobacco balance. My only complaint is the inconsistency of the roll compared to the 76.
