Default Ageing in Kegerator?

I just made a Vanilla Cream Ale posted in the Recipe forum. My first impression was that the vanilla was too strong(2oz in primary, 4oz at bottling). I already chilled and carbonated the beer and it is in my kegerator now. Will the beer mellow out over a few weeks like this or should it be taken out of the kegerator to age at room temperature?

I'd leave it in the kegger and take a small sample every other day to track how the flavors are changing. Vanilla dies off quickly in my experience.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
