Default Belgian dark strong ferment temp

Got a recipe for belgian dark strong. T58 yeast. What should my temps be for fermentation? I have used T58 for a saison an let the temp rise to 79. It turned out wonderful. Can I let the temps rise for a belgian dark strong? I have not had a beer of this kind before so don't know if it supposed to have that estery, peppery taste from high temps or not.

I'd pitch at 65 and ferment at 67 with a d-rest at 70. It will still produce significant esters; I don't like my BDS as spicy as a farmhouse ale. I'm sure it would work at higher temps, but that's my personal preference.
