If you have script runner plugin installed then you can write a script which uses "CommentManager" to iterate over the issue comments and update the custom field object with the comment's value.

You will need to find or write some code to do that. 

You haven't said when you want to do it (transition, during create, during edit, etc).  That probably determines how you're going to do this.
