We consider a bilayer system of two-dimensional Bose-Einstein-condensed dipolar dark excitons (upper layer) and bright ones (bottom layer). We demonstrate that the interlayer interaction leads to a mixing between excitations from different layers. This mixing leads to the appearance of a second spectral branch in the spectrum of bright condensate. The excitation spectrum of the condensate of dark dipolar excitons then becomes optically accessible during luminescence spectra measurements of the bright condensate, which allows one to probe its kinetic properties. This approach is relevant for experimental setups, where detection via conventional techniques remains challenging; in particular, the suggested method is useful for studying dark dipolar excitons in transition metal dichalcogenide monolayers.
