In brief: Variceal bleed

If you are talking about dark brown, coffee-ground like material in the mouth, it's probably coming from bleeding in the esophagus or the stomach due to varices, which is enlarged veins.
End-stage liver disease as in cirrhosis is often associated with esophageal or gastric varices.
