Greg Pearson notched Burton's first Football League hat-trick as his side hit four in 16 first-half minutes.
Pearson drilled a penalty after a Chris Blackburn handball, then added a left-foot finish, before Steve Kabba opened his Burton account with a rebound.
The hat-trick came in added time when Pearson nodded home from close range.
Aldershot substitute John Grant headed in but Kabba added a second, Anthony Charles saw red for a professional foul and sub Shaun Harrad fired the sixth.
Burton manager Paul Peschisolido told BBC Radio Derby:
"I thought the lads worked ever so hard today from start to finish. I'm absolutely delighted with the performance again.
"Aldershot are a good side and they're a difficult side to beat, but from the front to the back we were absolutely immense. If we play like that, we'll be difficult to beat. "
Aldershot boss Kevin Dillon told BBC Surrey:
"We scored a good goal, we hit the post, apart from that not a lot happened.
"We 're disappointed in the result and performance but I thought we did well second half - we ended up losing 2-1 second half and there were lot of positives."
