You just do not want open end grain on the top of the post. Attach a 3/4" thick piece of the sampson post wood (or a contrasting wood for effect) across the top of the post with epoxy adhesive. That should prevent water from getting into the end grain. Be sure to seal the posts well with saturating epoxy resin after drilling all the mounting holes, but before the final installation.
