Default is it ok to age carb'd beer at 67 degrees?

my basement is at 72, so my beers were being stored in my converted freezer at 50 degrees. i just brewed a robust porter and the OG was a bit high at 1.072. to hopefully avoid too much of an alcohol taste, i wanted to ferment a bit lower than the ambient temp in the basement. i placed the carboy in the freezer and raised the temps to 67...so now everything is at 67 degrees.

67 is perfect. In fact the BIG thing, like wine is fluctuation. Of course warmer is worse but by far the best thing is a constant temp.

67 is more then fine!!

I've brewed many batches that sat in bottles at room temperature (71-72) in a hall closet. No problem at all. 67 is great.
