The loan runs until 2 January 2016 and there is no recall provision for the player.
Burton, who are managed by former Dutch international Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, won promotion from League Two at the end of last season after topping the table.
The 29-year-old winger was signed by Blues on a two-year deal in the summer of 2014 and made his debut on the opening day of the 2014/15 season against Middlesbrough.
During last season's campaign he made just seven appearances for Blues, with his last start coming in Blues' FA Cup third round victory away at Blyth Spartans at the start of January.
He also spent a short spell out on loan with League One side Chesterfield in February, where he made three appearances for the Spireites.
