If you are looking to play safe ie you want to be sure your film is alright for whatever you plan to shoot, why not head down to town right now to get the film? What emulsion do you plan to use?

If you don't mind risking you can always try the expired film.

You're taking a risk using expired films, "problems" such as color shifts (slide films) and loss of contrast (black & white films) usually occur. Unless your subject matter doesn't justify buying a fresh roll of film, or you're cross-processing (then expired films become the choice film), I'd ditch the old film.

4 years in cold storage is a long time for a roll of film (or anything in the fridge), you'll probably get unsatisfactory results from it.
