Is the new version of the double tap to check phone that wakes up the full screen a permanent/intentional change? Any way to get the old, dark, minimal screen check back? If there's another thread, that'd be great I'm just not finding it searching/searching the wrong terms.

Stock Pixel 3. Willing to go to custom ROM to get it back, but would prefer a simple solution. Thanks!

Unfortunately no, the ambient display is gone as a double tap to wake feature. It'll only show if you have Always on Display turned on. It's dumb that they got rid of this. On the OG Pixel it's also removed in Android 10, but they didn't add in Always on Display to it.

I learned it somewhere that to set lock screen as black colour wallpaper, to kinda mimic the dark minimal screen ...
