Sure if you vent the co2 off the keg your gonna loose the aroma. The aroma is a volatile compound and it doesn't take much to get it out of the beer. It could easily be blown out with the co2. With that in mind, don't vent your kegs. You won't need to vent if you don't over carb them. You won't over carb them if you don't raise the PSI past the proper amount needed for that style/temp (10-15 PSI). It will take longer to carb at a lower PSI but maybe it's worth waiting for.
