In brief: Advanced

It means the liver is all scarred down.
Stage 4 is the same as having cirrhosis. It is irreversible. If whatever is damaging the liver is not controlled, it can lead to liver failure.

Cirrhosis of the liver is synonymous with the microscopic image classified as"stage 4".
Cirrhosis per sevis largely asymptomatic. However, end-stage liver disease, manifested by ascites, jaundice and other manifestations can quickly lead to death.
