Default To chill or not to chill

My first brew (nut brown ale) is 3 weeks old and I need some space. I am going to keg this and am wondering if I should store it at fermenting temp 65F or should I put it in the kegerator 38F? It tastes ok, but could use another week or two of aging, is this better accomplished at room temp or fridge temp? Thanks.

There was a thread a while back (started by I believe Bobby_M) that said something along the lines of "age it longer warmer". So I think it's best to let it age at 65F for a couple more weeks before dropping it down to serving temp.

Unfortunately, I can't find the thread though

I just transferred it to the corny, so until I hear different it will sit in the brew closet. God was that scary watching beer push out a starsan snake out of the top of the corny, I fear the foam.
