Can I gain fat from eating too much protein?

If protein is a building block for muscle, then you will never gain fat from overeating protein, right?

High-protein diets may promise weight loss, but it may only be short term. Excess protein is usually stored as fat while the surplus of amino acids is excreted. This can lead to weight gain over time, especially if you consume too many calories while trying to increase your protein intake.
