Realistically it's an old man beer and that old man requires some sort of heritage from Great Britain. It's not Guinness and it's not Rickard's Dark, both of which have markets and fans and this isn't going to tap those markets because the flavour profile is too different.

And coffee flavours in beer? C'mon. If I want a beer for breakfast I'll have a beer for breakfast.
This. I like beer. I like coffee. Coffee-infused beer? I'll pass. I managed 4 swigs of that bottle last night before dumping it down the drain. I'm always up to try something new, but that was just... ugh.
