Is this balsamic vinegar still safe to use?
I bought a bottle of Modena balsamic vinegar (label says aged 4 years)
two months ago and have used a scant amount. The remaining contents
congealed in the bottle. Should I throw it away or is there a
liquify it or otherwise make it useable?

I would throw it away. The best rule of thumb is when in doubt, toss
