This may be a very good read for this question. The author asks how strong is a dowel joint, but tests all of the usual suspects.

It used a M&T, which many will say is the same strength as a Domino loose tenon, it didn’t fare as well as some other similar studies which often has the Domino first. I do know a Domino is as easy as a biscuit, but a darn site tougher.

It’ll be interesting to see what other tests are brought up. But I can say from experience a dowel is a LOT tougher than a biscuit.
